To Mike and John,
To you and your families, Anne and I would like to send our condolences on the passing of your Dad. Fred was a wonderful man and we were fortunate to have known him.
Sorry I cannot be at the visitation or service as we will be out of town visiting our grandchildren in Fergus.
Deepest sympathy of the passing of your dad.
We will dearly miss our Uncle Fred and his caring visits. He always enjoyed keeping up with the news whether it was re family or politics. His willing chuckle warmed many hearts and we will all remember him fondly. Rod and Courtney and families send along their condolences from Bowen Island and Delta. Thinking of you all at this sad time.
