    Uncle Bruce was a kind, generous and fun loving Uncle. I’ll always remember many good times shared especially in his back yard pool. He impressed his great nieces with the size of the whirlpool he could make for us! And, I’ll never forget looking out the window at our home in Carp to see Uncle Bruce and Uncle Jessie getting out of their van. They’d been to Bala to get cranberries and thought they’d pop by for a visit on their way home to Rockton! I was blessed to grow up on the Ainslie Road surrounded by gnerations of loving family. I’ll miss you Uncle Bruce. Love Casper

    Grampa, I have so many ‘special’ memories of growing up with you and Grama. You were such an amazing support for me. Our children have so many memories of spending time with you as well. We are certainly going to miss you….but you are in a better place now. It was truly an honor and an incredible journey snuggling into you and you holding tightly onto my hand as you crossed through to the next life…It’s something I’ll never forget. God Bless you Grampa. Give Grama and my father-in-law Ken a hug and kiss for me…I miss you all…Love, Krista xoxoxo.
