    Hi Lynn,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I know your tears will fall on many wonderful memories of your years together.
    Kind regards,

  • Ian and Bev Robertson says:

    Lynne, please accept our deepest sympathy. I treasure the meetings that you and Jeff and I had during our long relationship. Jeff was always smiling and such a great guy. Our thoughts are with you.

  • Marilyn Ens says:

    Please accept my deepest sympathy. May the God of all comfort strengthen you during this difficult time. He has lovingly provided the means to end all our suffering. Through the death of his son we have the sure hope of being reunited with our loved ones who have died. He will end death once and for all time. A life of true happiness and peace awaits you. (Revelation 21:4; “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Acts 24:15 ” And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”) The following link provides more consoling thoughts from God’s word : http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/

    Dear Lynne
    Please know that our deepest thoughts and prayers are with you and all of the family. Every night before bed Malcolm and I talk about Pa and all of the things that make him so very special. The legacy that we all hope to leave behind is one of love and compassion. Even in his sad moments, Malcolm cannot help but smile as he “goes to the movies” or runs to the kitchen to have Pa’s chocolate milk. He is comforted because he knows that Pa is watching over him. All of the things that Jeff did and said will ensure that he lives on in the hearts and minds of all who knew him. I know that sometime in the future Malcolm will tell his own grandson to keep his hands clapping – and Jeff will be there in that moment.

    “Do not stand at grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.”

    All our Love

    Kevin and Malcolm

  • Laura MacDonald says:

    Dear Kathryn and family,

    My deepest sympathy and loving thoughts are with you. I know how deeply you love your father, his wonderful influence on your life and the deep sadness you feel at his loss. He was an exceptional dad and pa, and your memories will keep him in your heart always. All our love, Laura and Sarah
