Our condolences to Betty and the children. Jack always had a smile for everyone, and you could count on Jack and Betty's great senses of humour to brighten up our neighbourhood gatherings!

We have missed them since they moved, and our thoughts are with Betty today as we remember good times with a great couple who lived across the street.

God bless,
Henry and Donna

I wanted to extend my deepest sympathy to Aunt Bettie and all of Uncle Jack's "family" on his recent passing.

I attended the service this morning and know that Uncle Jack would have been proud of what his grandchildren said about their fond memories of being with him and having him as a grandfather.

Unfortunately, our families have not been in touch that much the past several years, but I wanted to say how positive, kind, and welcoming an uncle he was (with Aunt Bettie of course), and that he personified "integrity" in everything he was involved in.

My first recollection of meeting my Peterborough cousins was as a child visiting the family in Bancroft and being introduced to "porcupines" (family will know what I'm referring to).

I hope that your fond memories (and his guiding life principles to live by), comfort and sustain you at this difficult time. He will be missed but never forgotten by those who had the pleasure to have him in their lives.
