Nancy, Pat and family. My sincerest sympathy in the loss of your Dad. Used to speak to him when out enjoying nature on his property.


Lovely Man

Dear Murray I hope you will show me the way when we meet again as you did in Frontenac Park. Happy to have the memories of last summer and the Frontenac Challenge. I will think of you often and please say hi to Patsy for me as you explore the heavens. My deepest condolences to your loving family.
