To John's family,
Although we didn't know your Dad for very long, we enjoyed his friendship playing shuffleboard at Mapleridge Seniors Centre. We wish to express our sincere sympathy.

Dear Lisa,
I am so sorry for your loss. I was so shocked when I heard what had happened given our recent conversations. We just never know what the future will bring, and when it will bring it. Take as much time as you need to take care of yourself. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help out with your class. My thoughts and best wishes are with you and your family.

We wish to express our sympathy to John's family. My father, Stan Andrews, passed away almost one year ago. John and Thelma were so kind to him when they were 'table mates' at Peterborough Manor. John kept in touch with him after too. Treasure your memories

So sorry for your loss, Lisa. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. I know how hard it is to lose a parent. Take care, Nancy Norris.

Dear David, Chris and Lisa and families:
We were saddened to hear of your Dad's passing. He was a great guy; always so bright and quick with a laugh. We are thankful that we were able to "do lunch" with him and to talk old times with him this past summer. We will miss him, as I'm sure you will too.. Mary and I will regretfully not tempt fate to come to the funeral but will be there in spirit. Perhaps next summer we can have a Memories Party for him.

Peace to all of you.

Mary & John Collins, Sarnia
