Dear Doreen and the entire Aglor family. I was deeply saddened to learn of Gord’s passing. I have many fond memories of his kindness and his good natured teasing during my teenage years in West Hamilton. His meat pies were always a special treat and service was always with a smile, a friendly worď or two and Gord always asked after family members whenever I ran into him after he retired. May he rest in peace and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sandra (Miles-Farr) Carpenter from Royal and Ward Avenues.

Doreen: My sympathy in the loss of your dear husband, Gord, My brother Ben and I delivered groceries for “Gordie” while living on Ward Avenue and of course, I remember him well. My mother shopped at your store for many years and I remember the “tab” booklets Gord kept for his customers. Ben passed away in 2002, age 59.
May you be comforted knowing others share in your loss. Bill Van Dyk
