My deepest sympathy to Kathryn and her family in their loss. He was so kind and caring and truly cared for the residents in the condo building where he lived. My mom , who lived there alone, was forever grateful for this support and help when needed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time!

Our deepest condolences to Kay and family! We are so sorry you had to say goodbye.

We had the honour of knowing Fred these last few months and what a truly special man he was to all of us! A true gentleman, Fred always had a smile and a story to share. Our favourite story was when Fred received Mickey as a Christmas gift one year. We also liked the story of how Fred calmed the crying twins (and Kay) by flipping them over onto their tummies! We will always remember the fun times and the rummy games. We are all thinking of you during this difficult time.

From: Ashley and all your friends at the day program
