Dear Pat: Remeber the people in our lives are never really gone they have a cherished place in our hearts where they will always remembered for the love they shared and the happiness they brought. Brian and I grew up to-gether in the small town of Geraldton and I have many fond memories of our younger days growing up. As time passed we did loose contact with each other only to reconnect a few years ago. About two years ago I have a nice visit with Brian and you at your home in Mount Forest and we did have some good laughs of our days growing up in Geraldton. I know he had many health problems but now he is at peace. My prayers and thoughts are with you in this time of sorrow. God Bless.
