Your Dad was a quiet gentle man as we were growing up next door on 81 Ave. I remember him teaching you to ride your bikes. Working in the garden in summer and ice rink in winter. Building forts in our yard. Please accept my sympathies in your loss.

I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Russ’ passing . Russ was such a sweet and kind man. He always made me feel special and always had time for some chat and some laughs. He was definitely my favorite uncle. Time passes and we lose so many connections. Your Mom and Dad are remembered and loved. I hope we can get in touch again. I’m sorry I can’t join you tomorrow, I am housebound waiting for hip surgery. I will be there in spirit and thinking of those we have loved.

Sorry to hear that Great Uncle Russ has passed away. I have fond memories of him and Aunt Betty, and appreciated their kindness while I was growing up. The picture I uploaded is of “Big” Uncle Russ holding my daughter in 2005. Our thoughts are with all of his extended family.
