Just wanted to let you know how much we admired and cared for your Dad here at the Manor.The residents all miss his cheery smile and help in the morning with bibs and coffee...or organizing Bocci ball or selling tickets at the door. The staff all send their deepest sympathies to your family. He was a Treasure to us too , a truly Gentle Man and he will be missed and never forgotten.May God bless you all.

Bud will be remembered by the Library Outreach volunteers who had the pleasure of visiting with him. While we shared library materials with him, he shared his warmth and wit during our many visits. A true gentleman who devoted himself to making Manitoulin Centennial Manor a welcoming place to visit and a pleasant place in which to live. Our sympathies to Bud's family on your loss.
