Dear Tami & Family I am so sorry to hear of Buddy's passing. Joey phoned me tonight to tell me, he heard from his Molto grandparents who were friends of the McAleer Family. I have not been in touch with you, Tami, since I moved to Goderich, but the next time I am down your way I will stop by to see you. My prayers are with you, Brittany, Aaron and the rest of the family. Buddy is now at peace. Take care, bye for now, Deb

Dear Tammi, Brittany, and Aaron I want to send my deepest sympathy to your family at this difficult time. I have fond memories of Jim and will keep them in my heart. It is with great regret that I lost time with you all, and that I never got the chance to say goodbye. I am thinking of you and am sorry that work obligations have made me unable to attend. God Bless I know that I am a better person for having known him.

Dear Tami and family I was very sad to hear of your loss; Mum has been keeping me informed. I didn't know Buddy very well, but he was "around" for a lot of years when I lived in Canada - not a person easily forgotten - always made you laugh - always a smile on his face! Not a person who should have suffered; but that has all come to an end for him now, and we must all be glad of that. I am sorry that this is coming to you by email, but thought it was the only way to get something over to you quickly; wanted to know I'm thinking of you! Lots of love Maria xxxxx

Dear Mrs.Tami McAleer: Many years ago (38) I worked with Buddy at AMF Canada Ltd. I worked with Mr. Hatch in the office and Buddy on the line. My husband and I were expecting our first child, Jeff that August. At the end of June just before I finished work, Buddy and the guys went out shopping for my baby. Apparently Buddy did all the shopping. It was too cute to see those tough guys come into the office armed with baby booties, sleepers, blankets, etc. It really touched me, I have never forgotten it. Oddly enough, years later Buddy worked with that same baby, all grown up, (Jeff) at Kenhar. Jeff always enjoyed talking with Buddy and his sense of humour. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

Tami, Brittany and Aaron: So sorry to hear that "Buddy" passed away. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers.
