You don't know me Shirley, by name but I am your front door neighbor in the trailer park. Our granddaughters played ball against each other. I am so sorry for your loss. Wilf was an incredible person. I often stopped to talk to him when I was walking my dog. He was such a hard worker. I am going to miss seeing him trimming the hedges. Please accept my sincere condolences. I know you did everything together and you will miss him.
Sincerely Helen Towers

Kelly and family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. He was just the nicest man ever, I always enjoyed running into him when I was out and about. I will always remember his smiling face! Take care, sincerely, Terry Morrison.

Dear Shirley, Shane, Kelly, Colleen, Scott, and your families, children and grandchildren, we are so sorry to hear about Wilf. So many wonderful memories that our family holds near and dear to our heart, too many to mention. A big part of our lives growing up with your family as neighbours and as close to a family to us as well. Memories of backyard BBQ's, nights playing cards, Bingo, weddings, children, grandchildren, and now great-grandchildren. Wilf was always so close to Dad, and always looking after us girls when Dad was away, trying to keep us out of trouble. Dad has waited for 6 years for his good friend, now finally, they can play cards and have a few overdue snorts together. God Bless you all during this time. From our family to yours, our hearts are with you.

Sincerely, Evelyn, Louise (& Chris), Roger and Michelle
