Hi Roseann, Thinking of you! I am Christine (nee Hrycajczuk) Orr's cousin and I am just now reading the news about your father. My thoughts and prayers to you. Just wondering if you would like to e-mail me back to catch up on the past several years?? I am not sure if you still keep in touch with my cousin Christine or not? Cheers, Theresa

Dear Dorothy, Roseann, Paul, Brian, classmate Corrine and friend Wayne. Sadness filled my heart when I was informed of your husband and father's passing. Alf was a friend to my parents, but so much more to me. My first memories of him are of spending a few moments at his shop beside the library getting my skates sharpened and fixed, but it was later that I would get to know him when he coached me (and Wayne). Alf's patience, knowledge and unending support are things I'll treasure forever. I ran into him this past summer and was absolutely delighted to see he was the same man as always, talking about the old days (hockey, driving the bus non stop, and most importantly proudly filling me in on all the family's accomplishments over the past years, he was so proud!). Alf was one of the most important influences in my life and I was glad I was able to tell him just that last summer. He just smiled, and I knew he was proud. I feel privileged to have known him and your family, and my thoughts are with you during your time of sorrow and the years ahead. The world has truly lost one of the good ones. Sincerely, Jack Kennedy.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. Whenever I heard his name, I thought of the shoe repair store and the smell of leather. I went in the store often with my dad (Jim). I will never forget Alfie's long time relationship with my grandad..."Dinty" Moore and the great times they had together, and especially all the animals, like the Rabbits and Chinchillas...Alf will be missed by alot of people, but to me, his name will always conjure up nice memories.

Mrs. Dahmer and families, I have many fond memories of long talks with Alfie in the bank for years and years when I worked there. Time passes in the circle of life. Alfie was always optimistic and always a source of encouragement for myself and others I am sure. I will always remember his Easy Does It bumper sticker! He will surely be missed but never forgotten. What a privilege to have known him. Please accept my condolences at this sad time.
