SO sorry for your loss
Maureen, to you and all your family, and also to your father's wife Emilie and their extended family, I offer my prayers to support all of you and wish I could do something to lessen the pain. Unfortunately regardless of how good the life is that someone has lived, there is always pain when they leave us. Your Dad was a great guy. I always enjoyed his sense of humor when we were young. Bless all of you and bring you peace. Paul sends his prayers as well. Kathy and Paul Loncle
May our Lord bless and comfort you and your family during this time of grief. Please accept my sincere condolences. Terence and Natalie Tan
