God bless him. I am so sorry for your loss. As a young boy I played with Dino and Alfred. They taught me how to be a paperboy. To all of you I'm so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. The Potter Family.

Dave, Tammy, Sarah, 'Dino' & family,

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I have heard some great stories about your dad (granddad) over the years...he sounds like a great man, gentle soul, enjoyed life and was a respectable member of society! He has truly left his mark in this world and is reflected through his family.

Sincere condolences,

Dear Vivian and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. You were an inspiration to me Vivian and your love and kindness to both Ted and the people around you helped me through taking care of my Mom. You don't even know how much that meant to me. I will never forget the both of you. Love Cindy Lavimodiere
