Dear Brian and Laura. We have not seen you since you were children but we communicated with your dad at least annually. We were very sad to hear of his passing and have great memories of the times he and your mom came to Nova Scotia and our visits to Norwood. He was a lovely human being and such a great loss. Our most sincere condolences to you both. Bessie and Molly
