    My heart is with you all now, I only wish I could be there.
    He was my hero in so many ways. He and Karine took a frightened little 12 year old in, whose world had turned upside down and taught her about love, family and courage to continue on, for that I shall never forget and be forever grateful. He shared my secrets and my fears, he gave me answers to questions, I dare not ask anyone else. He gave me peace and the courage to go on. Knowing he was only a plane ride away was always comforting. Even as the years passed without seeing him, I knew he was there, a phone call away, I felt safe.
    He was my hero and inspiration, his life before he met Karine was never easy but he forged on, always with a smile, he never let bitterness in. He didn’t look back in anger, but with love and forgiveness, which was so him.
    When I met Karine and stayed with them I knew he had found his soul mate. They were such a handsome couple, always smiling at each other. Supporting each other in their mutual decisions.
    He touched so many lives here with his kindness of spirit. My parents loved him, I think my father thought of him as a son. He was so proud of him.
    Our hearts go out to you all now at the loss of such an amazing husband, father and grandfather. I know your loss is deep, but he is so much a part of all of you, he will always be with you. He is in your hearts and souls, forever with you. We love you all…Valerie, David, Angela, Tara and Nicholas
