Uncle was such a fine gentle person who always inspired my soul who gave his own form of humandie with his dry low key hummer and thinking that Bob Newhart copied him. We always appreciate that Uncle and Aunt Margreat would take the time and engery to travel with their young family from Dundas to Nova Scotia to celebrate all of our weddings and they were many of them. Guess you could say it's better sweet. The sweet part that Uncle was mentally able to keep it all together right down to the end. My dear Uncle tell we meet again please give Aunt Margreat a hug from all of us. ~andrew & sheila

So sorry for your loss, I'm sure he's flying high with Aunt Margaret. Thinking about both of them last evening and remembering their visits to Tracadie.
Oh, did he enjoy fishing, that's an understatement. I believe that was always the highlight of his trips home.
May your memories bring you peace and comfort at this difficult time.
Take care folks!
Love& Prayers
