Dear Gusty, Shirley and Family,

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of your Darling Husband and Father. He sold us our home in Fonthill, and not only was he easy to communicate with, he was always fair and honest. I know only too well how you must feel Gusty, to loose the love of your life. Please know that you and all your family are in my thoughts and prayers. My Deepest Heartfelt Sympathy.

My sincere sympathy on the passing of Frank. You both were very kind to me during the initial stage of selling your home in Fonthill. Frank was a true gentleman, always so very kind and considerate with a great sense of humour as well.
