Dear Rita, Emily, Angelica and family. This is very sad news from our Pennings-family from abroad. Although we are far away, and we haven't been in contact for a long time, I would like to express my sincere condolences to all the people who were close to Andrew. Incredibly sad to loose a husband, father, son and friend at such a young age. We wish you strength. Marianne Belt (and family)

Dear Rita, Emily, Angelica and the Ervine family,
My sincere sympathy on the loss of a very special man, Andrew "Andy" Ervine. I first met him when he was 9 and was thrilled to be able to watch his successes over the years. It was a joy to watch him come into Mass with his wife and then his 2 daughters. He was such a proud papa. It was always a treat to see him at the Board office. He was a people person and always greeted you with a big smile, hello and chat. I haven't seen him around the neighbourhood in recent years but know he will be missed by his family and all those who were part of his journey. Rest in peace, Andrew. Until we meet again.
