Dad,I am sitting here as if I am just writing you a letter.this is not real to me yet....I was able to stay with you to see you one last time,a very special moment for me.Your glasses were taken from your face and I straightened your Canada pin.You should have seen the look on our faces when we saw that your wedding ring was not there.Let us just say that Mom was very concerned about having it.As we lowered the lid I said my last"see you Dad" and was doing very well until I realized that this was it.I squeezed your hand one last time and then it was done.I will do my best to make you proud,but it will be tough without you around.You know I love you,it was a very easy thing to say.I will do my best to help Mom and Ken. love Deb xo

Dear Shirley I am really sorry to hear that Ron has passed away. I often think about our days working at K-Mart in Rexdale. Ron was a great guy and we will all miss him. I am battling lung cancer myself and it is tough. My condolences to you and your family. Love, Bill Bradley

Dearest Shirley, Ken, all the beautiful grand kids and great grand kids; It is with shock and sadness to learn of Ron's passing. It has been over two decades since that wonderful day you both joined Spring Valley. The excitement and anticipation of a new life in the country was in your eyes & giggles. You both were like 2 young lovers experiencing firsts together. I will always remember the joy and pride you and Ron shared having a new home plus being close to Ken & and the grandchildren in the park. Family meant everything to Ron. He was so very generous with his heart and caring soul. He hurt when his family hurt and cried with joy at celebrations. Shirley you were and always will be the love of his life, 2 peas in a pod. Ron's gentle soul and smiling eyes will live on as fond memories. I will always adore Ron for his kindness to my parents during our trying times. It gives me such a heavy heart to think that I'll never be able to see him again nor that great big contagious smile of his. The memories I have of Ron will lighten my heart as I hope it will all of you. Our deepest sympathies go to you Shirley and all of the family. Always, Love Sandi & Tony

Granddad you will be missed and in our hearts forever. Your were taken from the family so sudden, but your memories stick with us all forever and will live on. I have known you for 13 years now and wish it could of been longer. I lost all my grandparents and was happy that I could call you granddad and grandma, never had a granddad in my life and it felt so right to have you in mine. We will carry you on in our lives and make sure the great grandkids know what a wonderful and caring person you were to everyone. We miss you and may you look down on everyone and protect them. Love always and forever Suzy, Adam, Mariah, Cameron and new baby to be.

Grandpa, You will be sadly missed by everyone who ever met you. Your great granddaughter or great grandson will know you only by pictures and by the stories they are told. Julian will carry you forever as he looks just like you. I will always remember the stories that you shared with me. I will never forget the first time you let me drive your car or the fact that i have my licence because of you and grandma. Thank you for everything that you have showed me throughout my life and I will pass on your ways to my children. We love you now and forever. Jamie, Mike, Brandon and Anthony and baby to come in November

Grampa, you have no idea how much you will be missed. We all love you so much. To have you taken from us so suddenly does not seem fair. I love you. Love always Kristie, Joey and Julian Marinic

— Kristie Marinic, October 12, 2008

I am going to miss my grandpa very much. He was a great man and it's too bad that his great-grandaughter Hannah didn't get to spend too much time with him. We love you! Rest in Peace.
