Archibald Macdonell

MACDONELL, Archibald The family of Archibald MacDonell would like to thank the community for the outpouring of love, generosity and respect shown in past years and recent weeks of our father’s life. Archibald needed considerable care and support in his later years. These challenges were met by the competency of Bayshore home care under the tutor of Tammy Riche CCAC and Dr. Lucie Lajoie. We were very thankful for care given by Glengarry Memorial Hospital and from the Maxville Manor. These are two fine facilities that we must strive to support. Thanks to Father Louis Groetelaar, Father Rory MacDonald, Father Andrew Shim and Deacon Kerry McDonald for leading the funeral mass. Special thanks to the altar servers who gave their time and to Brenda and Robert MacDonald for delivering the readings and prayerful intercessions. A big thank you to David MacPhee, Catherine Olive Defreitas, Evelyn Cumming and Charlotte Reed for the Scottish fiddling. David has been a great support for our family. Thanks to Robbie Moffat for his piping music. We would like to thank St Mary’s choir for the wonderful singing. Our father loved St Mary’s church. It was a great comfort to him to know he was coming home. Thanks to the St Mary’s Centre committee and the Ladies Guild for making and serving a perfect lunch. We want to express our gratitude for all the meals, visits, cards, and expressions of sympathy in Dads honour. Our family was very fortunate to have such a kind, honorable and gentle father. We were blessed to have him in our lives for so long and will continue to carry him in our hearts.13327480
