Lana and family. I'm so sorry for your loss. Your dad was a great man. He was always smiling and ready to tease and tell a joke to make others smile. Big hugs xo

As I sit here typing this and looking at some of the really great photos of Bim my friend of over 70 yrs. It brings back great memories of our history: graduations, marriages, births of our children, birthday parties and of course Sunny Dave and Irene. Yes we called Bim's parents by their first names as did all our friends. To Kim Lana and Lorie I ask God to bless you. I know how much he loved you.

It saddens me that I won’t see Bim’s smile nor hear his one liner remarks again. He was there for us when Mom was ill, and she truly enjoyed his visits. I’m sharing a photo of him Christmas eve 2015 when visiting my mother in hospital and eating Kim’s meat pie which was a huge hit. He will be sadly missed.

I greatly regret that I won’t be able to go to the funeral due to the bad weather that is forecasted. I so wanted to pay my respects to such a good man.

To my sil Lana, Kim, Laurie, and your families I want to convey my sincerest condolences. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
