Thank you for the wonderful page dedicated to my grandfather. He was loved by everyone he knew. He was such a patient and kind man. I loved to hear his stories and inquire about his eventful life. I will now pass on those stories for times to come.

You will be sorely missed, I know that you will be looking down on me - helping to guide me in the right direction. Rest in peace Grandpa!

I remember my Uncle Mike as a kind, good-humour-filled and gentle person. I still look at some model cars on the road and think "shoebox" which is what he called his car when I was a little kid. I will miss sending the Christmas card and the occasional chat with him but rejoice that he is now with his beloved Eileen. Bless him and his family.
