Claudette, John, Jack & Families:
I extend my condolences to all of you as you begin a new chapter in your lives without your dad (grandfather). I'm sure you have many cherished memories which are very comforting when a loved one is gone. Your athletic achievements were a great source of pride to your parents and they were supportive of your endeavours. I'm sure you have many cherished memories of your Dad which will be comforting throughout the days ahead.
Sincerely, Ruth Dukelow

Claudette, John, Jack and families,

We wish to express our sincere sympathy on the passing of your father. I have many fond memories of him being one of the Bruins' greatest supporters. Both of your parents always treated me so well and always welcomed me at the farm. Cherish the many memories you have of him.

Take care,

Pat & Bob Reddick
