    Jeannine, Warren and Kelvin,

    Our deepest condolences on the loss of your father.

    Both your parents were caring, thoughtful and loving of me and my family. Though we moved while my two boys were still young, they still fondly remember the Christmas visits to your house and the presents that were always waiting for them.

    Mr. Oda was always supportive and encouraging. He had a great sense of humour and an ever positive view to life. He has left these attributes behind for us to remember him by.

    Our thoughts are with you and your families.

    Tarun, Safia, Akhil and Nabil

    Dear Oda Family, our condolences and thoughts are with you at this time. Both Chuck and Lily were so welcoming to us when we moved into our home across from theirs on Cushendale Drive back in 1977. They will always be remembered by us and we can hear great stories of the Oda family from his nephew Brian and his wife Heather. They are great neighbours to us!

    Thinking of you,

    Rose and Ozzie Ciliberti and family
