Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing your dear father. I have only fond memories of Edgar from my time in Halifax so many years ago. I do recall him as being very kind and friendly. I am quite sure he played bridge with my parents at our home.

My thoughts are with you during this challenging time.

Dear Seema & Sammy, Anita & Mark, Sandra & Sam and families;
Sincere condolences on Edgar’s passing. I fondly remember all those great Thursday night softball games with Edgar and the bo yes and the comraderie we enjoyed both on the field and off. Edgar was a true gentlemen and I will miss his smile - not so much his inside pitches!
I’m certain he has left you all with fond memories which will help you through these difficult times.
May his memory be a blessing.
Mark & Ethel
