  2. My heart aches for you and your family. I’ll never forget Lino’s generosity and graciousness, our neighbor. Just remember that a person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Please accept our condolences, Lino will not be forgotten. My family will always have fond memories of your father. His smile and caring attitude always cheered me up, and when I trimmed my giant trees, he always advised me to take it easy. He is missed, but never forgotten. Thank you my neighbor.

  3. Colleen and John so sorry for the loss of your father. I have very fond memories of both your father and mother when I stayed with them while recovering from knee surgery. Always a good meal good wine and a spirit of warmth and caring. We shared many Ottawa Valley stories and I was glad to see him last September when in Sudbury. A gentle giant of a man. May he soar with the angels.
