Peter & Sharon, heartfelt condolences at the passing of Lorne,a terrific individual and someone who had a solid record of building a province while in government. Raised a pretty sharp young man around the bargaining table too.

Great Uncle who gave me great memories

I'm so sorry to hear about the news of Uncle Lorne's passing. I just found out, and am extremely sad.

I have a lot of wonderful memories of him, the most recent of his teasing me about how I used to follow him around as a little girl.

He was a wonderful man, and will be greatly missed.

RIP Uncle Lorne

I am sorry to hear the news of Uncle Lorne passing on. He was an exceptional man. I have many wonderful memories of their visits to Chippawa and of our visits to see him and Auntie Ivy. They were always so good to me when I was young and I will always remember Uncle Lorne's kindness, generosity and his incredible sense of humour. My sincerest condolences to Doug, Peter, Janice and your families.

It is with extreme sadness that we express our condolences to Doug, Peter and Janice (and their families) on the passing of Uncle Lorne. He and Ivy always had an open door for relatives who were in the area, and extended such a warm and inviting welcome to all who dropped in. We have many wonderful memories and cherish the times we were able to share. He will be sorely missed.
