Beth and Bryan:
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I was sadden to hear to the news about your dad. He was simply put "a great guy”. I will remember his wonderful laugh, gentle disposition, his collection of fix up projects in the basement of your home on Tripp Crescent , the fantastic dinners he prepared (I’ve never had a roast so good!) and of course, the tremendous pride he took in both your accomplishments. He was a man of few words but didn’t miss an opportunity to talk about what you were both up to. I value the time I had living with your mom and dad and will fondly remember them always.
Take care of each other,

Dear Bryan and Beth

We were so saddened to hear of your dad''s passing. Sorry we were not able to be there for you guys. It was so thoughtful of you to keep us informed during this stressful time. As you probably know your dad phoned us shortly before he went to Sudbury but did not indicate that it was anything serious, so we were quite shocked when we received Bryan''s call. We will miss your dad dearly as we miss your mom. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as always.
