GERRY BOUCHARDSORRY TO HEAR ABOUT GRANT . HE WAS A GREAT INDIVIDUAL AND I ENJOYED WORKING WITH HIM THE VERY BEST
Gary and Faye Polci from Dundalk On.Dear Alma,it saddens me so much to receive this email about the loss of your husband Grant Simpson. As I look into the past when traveling all those miles in our Golden Transports all over the Province of Ontario in all the terrible weather, ice, snow and fog, that mother nature could throw at us, we always arrived home safely. Grant was to me a great Driver and friend. It was the laughs and fun with all the other deceased drivers in the drivers lounge, Rod and Gun, Barbecues and Dances with our Wives. Yes he leaves me with many wonderful memories and no doubt will be missed terribly. Our deepest sympathy to you Alma and your Family and may God Bless You All.
Doug and Pam HigginAlma, Sorry to hear of Grants passing. I have many fond memories of Grant. I enjoyed the many years knowing him while we worked for Labatts. I speak on behalf of all members of the Pensioners Club that when Grant was president that we all admired his dedication and commitment to the Club. May God Bless and comfort you at this difficult time.
