Brother Bob wrote and told us of Uncle Gene’s passing…. He was fortunate to have lived a full long life. The last time I saw him was at Jack’s (dad’s) funeral at Footsbay.
I have many fond memories of our Christmas gatherings together. Uncle Gene was a very good man. Our sympathies are with you and your families….
I don’t know at this time if I will be able to attend the funeral in Muskoka, but our thoughts will be with you all… John and Wendy
I’m thinking of all three of you children at this time. Gord (my late husband) and I had many good times with your mom and dad. The memories last forever! At 92 I’m now living in a home near Peterborough. I wish you and your families well.
Hi Anne, we have been trying to find you but Dad had no idea where you were or how to contact Marion or John. Please send your email or phone to me at [email protected].
We can up you on all the happenings.
Keep well, Rick
