    Sorry to hear of the passing of Neil. I knew him to be a very kind and gentle man with a good sense of humor, which I’m sure I tested a few times. I know he was a loving father to his daughters, I hope he was able to enjoy lots of time with his grandchildren. To Virginia and Jeff, Barb and Steve along with the rest of the family I wish you well in this time of loss. Warm wishes.

    I am sorry to hear of Neil’s passing and grateful that Dad (Murray), Brenda and I were able to visit with Neil and Ruby on several occasions over the recent past. We laughed as we engaged in spirited conversation around a table of delightful treats. My mother Elaine was cousin to Neil and as a child I spent the odd week end at their modern family home in Edmonton with Laurie and poodles Shannon and Peppy. My condolences to Ruby and Neil’s family.
