5 Condolences

  1. Thank you so much for all the condolences. My father and I were a great team. He will be missed so tremendously. My condolences to my family in Scotland. I know how much you loved him. He was such an intelligent and witty guy. He, and my Mother, I would like to think, had an impact on people’s lives. My mother loved her students and my dad loved all the ladies…and gents that made up his staff at memorial. What a great family to belong to. It was a privilege to have worked there. He was a great person and I will miss him so much.

  3. Sharon, Emma, Sophia, Thomas and family,
    Brian/Frenchie was an amazing person in so many ways. A great Uncle and true friend to Suz, Rhonda and me (& parents). We loved to spend time with him – so much fun, kind, positive, interesting, patient, comical, great conversations. So many good memories together – from going to Sudbury in the summer/Easter when we were young, from Shar/Bri/Mar coming down to Deep River & across the river, to going down to Florida several fun times including St. Pats a few years ago, to Cuba for my birthday (sorry Brian for making you sleep with Ralph…), skiing in Tremblant when Brian and Rhonda broke their ski boots the exact time, snowboarding in Calabogie (Shar, Brian turned 60 and I) – what a trooper Brian was! – to visits more recently in Ottawa, Collingwood and the Camp. I especially loved how Brian said our names – MeeShell, Ronnnda, Suzzann, Sharooon – I can just hear him saying them now. Cheers to Brian. You will be greatly missed and always loved. Michelle

  5. Sharon and family, we would very much like to be able to attend the service for Brian, but unfortunately we are too far away at this time. Brian was a great brother in law, and we will remember the many great times we spent together. There will be a void in our lives with his passing. Our sincere regrets.
