    Jack will always be remembered and missed. Our bond was strong and we grew up together from River Denys to Noranda and Sydney. We loved to have the candy man come in our later life when he would come into the travel agency. He came to our Myles reunions which were held in River Denys and he was at Mary’s funeral which was the last place that I saw him. He told me he was thinking of going to Sarnia and I’m glad he was with his family in the end. Our condolences to the family. Sincerely, Kaye

    Sorry to hear about your husband and father. The few times that I had the good fortune to meet and talk with him at family functions and the odd business meeting in Halifax I always enjoyed my conversation with him.

    My sincere condolences and I hope that you are all doing well at this time.
