Auntie Cecile and my Gourlay Cousins,
I just can’t think about Uncle Tom without smiling. He was such a force but then could have the most gentle thought. I am so glad the suffering is over for him, I am so glad I got to enjoy him and know him firstly through the eyes of Gran and my parents, then for myself as an adult.
I love you guys,


Cecile, Lynn, Elaine, Patrick and Anne and all the family, our thoughts and prayers are with you all as always. I was BLESSED to have Tom as my “big brother” and loved him soooo very much. God love you all,

Francie & Ron

Nous désirons offrir nos sincères sympathies à Cécile et à toute la famille à l’occasion du décès de Thom.
