    Dear Lindsay, Maureen, Kerry-Anne and “Reg”
    I have been thinking of you all daily over the past few weeks. I know how much you are hurting and missing him. He was one of the “cool” and fun Dads when we were in high school – I always felt so comfortable around Jack and Reg.
    Our sincere sympathy and prayers are with you all.
    Evelyn and Lyle, Katy and Liz

    Lindsay, Maureen and Kerry-Anne –
    We were so sorry to learn of the passing of your father, Lindsay.
    Losing a father is so difficult and especially for those of us without siblings.
    Although we are away from Canada right now, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    It was with great sadness, Lindsay and Maureen that I read news of Jack’s
    passing. I knew over the years how much he has meant to everyone in your family. Please know our prayers and thoughts are with you. If I could take even one piece of the pain away from you, I would. But I have to trust that your strength will carry you through this challenging time. Hugs Deb (wood)
