heart and generosity will be felt forever in our memories of him. He fought hard and held strong that each day would get better. We pray that he is finally at peace, and is

surrounded by all the beauty and love around him. Forever in our hearts with much love. In lieu of flowers, please make donation in his name to honour his memory to, The

Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada or Saints Rescue (Animal Rescue Mission).
