  1. Jim and Catherine Bolger :

    We are Jaden’s Great Uncle and Aunt in Ontario. Very, very sad to hear this news. Jaden really loved his grandpa and was so proud to introduce him to us last summer at the Fairmont condo. They looked like very good friends together.

    We are thinking of Jaden and Danielle, and the whole Hemsing family during this very difficult time.

    Kelvin was a good friend from the first time I met him. I could tell stories all day long of the experiences we had together. There’s a reason God has taken him away fron all of us so soon. He’s probably got a big project going on and needs some experienced help.

    My condolences to Sandy and the family.

    We are very saddened to hear of Kelvin’s loss. We have heard all about “poppa” over the years from Jaden. It is obvious that he is very dearly loved and will be missed terribly. Jaden, Danielle, Sandy and Carson and all the extended Hemsing family, please know that the “eastern connection” have you all in our thoughts and prayers.

  5. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Kelvin or Sandy, I did enjoy all of Pat’s stories about the time he spent with Kelvin! What laughter and freindship he brought into Pat’s life. Thank you Kelvin, your memory will bring a smile each time Pat relives another story!

    Sandy, I hope we can meet one day. You have my sincere sympathy.
