  8. Elaine so sorry to hear about the passing of Dan. Dan was at the program when I first started 4 years ago at AEC in Petrolia. He was such a wonderful man and loved to talk and enjoyed playing cards, music and cribbage as well. He will be missed by so many and actually just was saying last week about all the men that use to come and play cards , cribbage and now hardly have any. Thinking of you all at this difficult time. Love Always Maureen Bailey from AEC Day Program in Petrolia !!!!

  9. Mark:
    I am very sorry I could not make the service tonight. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your mom, Daniel and Lorne (and your families).

    Your father was an intelligent, interesting and well respected man and I know you loved and respected him very much.

    Your old friend,
