    I want you to know that you were truly one of the best people to be in my life. We shared a common bond in helping other people, but I doubt you knew how much you were helping me all along. You always supported me and gave me all the love a granddaughter needed. The pure joy on your face when you were in a room with all of us was hard not to miss.
    To my always smiling, happy papa, we can rest easy now knowing you can once again do everything you loved to do. You can have the conversations you want to have, take the long walks you have been waiting too long to take. Meet again with everyone who has gone before you. Know that we will take great care of nana until the day you are reunited. I hope you can now live life the way I wish you had always been able to.
    I love you so much, I will miss you dearly, and I will make sure to tell my kids how truly wonderful you were!
    I’ll like you forever, I’ll love you for always, as long as I’m living, my papa you’ll be.

    I remember your Dad so well, living on King Edward in Montreal. He was a hard working man, always willing to help his neighbours. Cherish the good times you had with him, as they’ll help you through the sad times.
    Heartfelt sympathy,
    Donna Dragoun
