Dear Deborah and family. I am so very sad to read this. My goodness he always seemed years younger than his age, always with a smile. I enjoyed his calls and discussing your travel plans. I send you huge hugs, may you find joy and comfort, in all your memories. God bless, Carolyn Condon-Burns

Debbie, Allison, Charlie: I am so sorry to hear of Dr. May's passing. He was a wonderful man. I have fond memories of him while growing up in Peterborough; of dinners at the Smith household when my Mom and Dad would have the Mays over. I remember seeing Debbie & "Buck" often during their regular walks around Roper Drive. I even ran on that old YMCA track that John Mariasine refers to with my Dad and Dr. May. So glad that I had a chance to chat with him last fall at my Dad's celebration of life.
