To the 3 D’s and a J – I am so sorry to hear of Homer’s passing. I have many fond memories of both Homer and Eileen while growing up with Jay. I spent a lot of time at their house and always felt like one of the family. May you all find comfort that your folks are together again.
Jay, Deb, Denise and Diane:
Dave, Missy and I just wanted to let you know that you are in our thoughts during this difficult time. May God wrap his arms around you and give you the peace that is needed during this time. Your parents are together again and we have many memories of both of them.
Dearest cousins: Just got the news of Homer’s passing – sincerest condolences to the whole family. Seems like just yesterday we would pile in the car and drive the 8-9 hours to see you all. Your mother’s laughter and your dad’s sincerity are how I remember them. Wish that I could be there with you but time does not allow that. I will call in a day or two, once things settle down. Please make sure everyone gets our best wishes – we will be thinking of you.
Love Pat & Rick, Michelle, Derek
Jay,Debbie, Denise, Diane and families,
We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Homer’s passing. We have so many fond memories going all the way back to the 1950’s when he was stationed in Argentia Newfoundland where he met and married your Mom, Aunt Eileen. He always spoiled us with candy on his visits to our house. The visits continued when we moved to Toronto. I have memories of fun times when visiting Willard – boat rides, a visit to Cedar Point and of course the fun of all of us gathering together. I can now picture all the aunts and uncles reunited again. We’re sorry that we can’t give you a hug in person but know that we are sending you our love as you go through the difficult days ahead.
Love from Ottawa
