    Aunty Anne, our hearts are breaking for you, Lisa, Harry and Art. He really was the whole family’s sweetheart and your loss is very sadly shared among us. Together we can bear it. Derrick was always so good-natured and kind. Even when he was teased & tormented! Our little Minnesota Fats! But I expect that’s (at least a bit) down to your good mothering. Wish we could be with you now. Lovingly and with you in spirit, Lilli, Betty Ann, Chuck and Paul.

    Fritz will be greatly missed at Friday Night hockey. He will be remembered for his love of the game as well as his fellowship afterwards as we solved many of the world’s problems over a pint or two.
    He was an honest, sincere, good-natured individual with a great sense of humour.
    May he rest in peace.

    Take care,
    Your fellow gym friend, Shannon
