    Sherry, so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. I have very fond memories of growing up across the road from him. He was a best friend of my big brother, Bill, who passed away 8 years ago. They spent many hours dragging me around the pond trying to teach me how to skate. Then, to make matters worse, when I did learn how, they used to have to let me play hockey with them. I was eight years younger and very much a pain in both their behinds! I adored my big brother and needless to say, had him wrapped around my little finger. It was often times to both their disappointment that I wanted to go every where they went. But, being the kind persons they both were, they usually let me tag along! I am certain you have very fond memories of your Dad. Hold them close, it is never easy to loose a loved one! Take care and find comfort in the kind, loving legacy he has left for you and your children.
    Phyllis Russell (Parsons)

    Although I didn’t know him all to well he was still like family to me because he was a part of my families family. He was a nice man who seemed easy going and caring. His battle with cancer has lasted as long as I can remember and I was inspired by his strength while fighting this battle. Although he couldn’t win this time I know he has fought it as long an hard as he could. Heaven has another angel and I’m sure he’s listening to Aaron play his guitar as I wrote this. My prayers go out to the family and I hope to make it to the memorial.

    It is always a sad day when a wonderful person of God’s children passes. Uncle Fred, you will be dearly missed. I admire your devotion to your daughter Sherry and two small grandchildren. You are loved and now you are resting away from pain and sorrow.
    I remember you for your love of lottery tickets and daily walks in the mall. It has been a blessing to have gotten to know you after your move to Calgary from Toronto.
