I am really sorry to hear about your loss. My deep condolences to Tom and family, who was my teacher at LCVI many years ago. My children were his students in his English class at LCVI, Kingston.
My Condolences.

To Riddoch Family,

I am saddened to learn of your loss. I was a history student of Dr. Riddoch's during the '99-'00 academic year and really enjoyed her course and the way she taught it. I also had the opportunity to assist her in choosing Christmas gifts in 2001 while working part time at Cunningham & Poupore. She was a wonderful person, kind and a wonderful Professor. I will remember her and hope that time will heal the safeness associated with her passing. My sincere condolences.

My Sympathies

Greg, and Mr Riddoch.

You have my sympathies, I remember an instance of your mom being very king to my father. It was appreciated. All the best, and my sympathies for your loss.
