Maggie and Family: I worked with Alex at Kassingers on Rossland Rd back in 68-70, plus my brother Bob and his wife lived next door to you all. Alex was a friendly man and could always tell such funny stories. When we had down time he was always ready for a coffee and story telling. His stories of course! His kindness to me helped me in my first secretarial job after I graduated from school. I have always remembered him and as you folks continue on, you will have many wonderful memories as well. Our sympathies for your loss and our prayers to you all. Lynda and Claire Glendinning

Dear Maggie, Sue, Greg and Caitlyn

I will always think of Alex at the cottage building away or directing us how to do it and do it right! He had the patience to help us learn even if he had to fix it later!

I really enjoyed his company and after a long day of work, his comradery with all those around, especially his family.

He will be missed

Scott and Pam.
