  1. David & Christine (Dacey) Porter :

    Tim, Pam & Family,
    We extend our condolences to you with your Jajis passing. He will be remembered by us as a kind and gentle man, soft spoken and wise. We did not know him well, but enjoyed spending time in his company. He was so filled with pride on your wedding day, and watching as Tim opened his wedding gift, the painting of the train the following afternoon. The Christmas dinner we shared together was a lot of fun and it was an honor to get to know Ted a little better. What a blessing for you all to have had such a gentleman in your lives.
    With Sympathy, The Porter Family

  2. Dear Donna and Family,
    It was with great sadness that I read about your father’s passing. He was a very kind and special person. Your mother and mine were best friends growing up and our parents were great friends when they lived in Montreal. Please accept my most sincere condolences.
    Sincerely, Fran
