  2. It’s hard to put into words how much this man will be missed and how he touched the lives of so many while with us. He welcomed me into his family as though I were one of his own and for that, I am truly grateful. I admired his wit and sense of humour and he was a wealth of information on so many levels. His love and commitment to the love-of-his-life, Irene; and to his family…. I respect him and will never forget him because he lives on in my memories, in my heart, and in the legacy of his children. Heaven can rejoice as they have one amazing soul joining them.

    I’m thinking of how you all cared for him so. Such a tribute to have your folks in your home, and how Freddy tended to his Grandad’s health needs. You can all be so proud of having added life to his years. Our best to you all, and to your Mom, Karen. Thinking of you all, often.
