Dear Janet, Sorry to hear about your dad. It's hard to lose family members, especially a parent. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I knew you through the Biology Society at Laurentian in the early 70's. It's such a long time ago, yet it feels like yesterday.
Vince lit up the lives of so many of his fellow residents at SJCCC (including me). He always brought a smile to his many friends there. My condolences to the family.
My sincere condolence to the family, we all grew up beside each other on Irene Crescent, we've been friend and neighbours for a long time. I just lost my Dad (Aurel) several months ago, and I feel your pain. Love Denise and Family
