May it comfort the family to know,that when you lose a loved one
who has meant so much and touched many people`s lives,
the grief that you are feeling cannot take away the happiness you shared,
and that sorrow will fade in time but the love will remain forever.

It was my pleasure to work at Dot and Andy`s store the summer of 1959.

The Besuden clan has spent a lot of time reminiscing about Andy in the last week. What a great guy he was, a dear friend to our fathers and someone who had a special place in all of our hearts. When we were little kids we so looked forward to taking the boat across the lake to the general store and always being greeted with big smiles and hugs by both Dot and Andy. They say your greatest legacy is your children and in Dot and Andy's case that is so true with such a wonderful group of children, grandchildren and greats. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. With Love and many warm memories.

My deepest sympathy is extended to the entire Watson family. While your patriarch is now in heaven, may the gift of wonderful memories ease your sadness.

Rest in peace, Andy Watson. Heaven is a more gifted place, for with your passing, you carried with you a huge part of the Manitoulin. For those who's lives you touched, your kind and gentle spirit lives on until we meet again.

God's blessings to all.
