  1. I extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family Garry. Though I never had the opportunity to meet your father it seemed that his reach as a grandfather went well beyond just your family.

    Your love and care for him as a son over the past months while “remodelling” his house was apparent through your stories. I am sure that he appreciated all that you did.

    You are a great friend and I share in your loss.

    Randy and Cathy,
    It was with great sadness we heard of the loss of Ted. Julia’s and my visits to Calgary were always brightened by Ted’s cheerful spirit and welcoming personality. They were made extra special with the connection Julia and Ted made reminiscing about her summers spent in the Ukraine with her Grandmother.
    We will forever remember his bright smile.
    Julia and Phil

  5. Garry, Randy and family;

    You do not know me but whenever your father came into Superstore (Southport) he always made a point of coming to say hi to me. He was always so happy and always seemed proud to tell me the things he had accomplished and what he was planning to do next. He always talked about his sons and his grandchildren. He always put a smile on my face when I saw him. I will surely miss his visits and his smiley face. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this diffucult time.
