Book of Condolences

Brenda Dalwood & Joan Cameron Dear Saranne and Jim Having known Gord for 50+ years, we know what a wonderful man he was. We met your family at the air force base at Centralia and our families have stayed in touch ever since. He was a very caring and loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He will be missed by all who knew him. He will now make up the fourth for the card games that your parents and ours used to play. They will all be reunited in Heaven. Hoping that will give you a little peace and comfort. With our Deepest and Most Heartfelt Sympathy Joan and Brenda
