Well what can we say Gladys, Keith and Lynn we are all sorry for your loss. We came over to this country in 1966 spent time in the Soo and moved to Sarnia as we grew up I can remember every Friday and Saturday night watching the hockey game and then the four of you going to the BOC club many, many great memories from my childhood. Uncle John as we called him will be missed. Our thoughts are with all of you.
