Dear Ken,Debbie,Larry,Kim and Laurie and families: Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your dad. I know he will be greatly missed. He was one of my favourite uncles and even though I didn't see him very much I thought and talked of him often. He had a wonderful sense of humor and an infectious smile. I'm sorry I will not be able to be there with you today but I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Again, please accept my deepest sympathy. Love, Irene & Bob Gauthier

Ken and family I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. My thoughts are with you and your family. I can remember your dad coming into office with the big smile on his face and the conversations we used to have...many good memories

Ken, Larry, Debbie, Laurie, Kim: I was saddened to hear of the passing of my Uncle John. But in a way I was heartened, too, because remembering him this week brought back a lot of great memories of the good times we all had over the years as we grew up. Here was a man who enjoyed life like few people I know. He spread happiness and good cheer to everyone he came in contact with. Of course we will all miss him, but as long as we remember him and try to carry with us some of his indomitable spirit, he won’t ever be truly gone. At times like this I wish I didn't live so far away. However, I'll be thinking of you all today as you attend the memorial. All the best, cousin Dave, London, England
