We will remember Lawrence as always a gentleman who made us feel very welcome in the area when we first moved here eight years ago. His record of public service speaks highly of his consideration for his community. A very pleasant man with a generous nature.

We are sorry that we can not be with you during this difficult time but we know that you are not alone. With the many organizations and charities that you and Grandpa were a part of you are undoubtedly surrounded by many good friends. We are so grateful that we were able to visit with the two of you during our time back in Ontario. We will forever cherish my fond memories of the many activities spent with Grandpa. From summer holidays helping on the farm, Christmas wagon rides and helping at the reception of our wedding. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, and we know that Grandpa is watching us from a better place.
