Susan LougheedI am so sorry to hear about your loss. I am thinking about all you and sending hugs your way. It's so hard to lose a father, husband, grandfather and great-grandfather; but even more so when they are taken from us way too young. I have some great memories with the Kipp family from way back when you were in London. With sincerest of sympathies, Susan Lougheed ox
May and Diane GarleyDear Nancy, Mel, Scott and Ryan; We are deeply saddened to learn that our Gary's life was cut short by this bout of illness. He fought so hard over the past 6 weeks, with courage and strength to remain with you all, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be. May has such fond memories of Gary as her youngest brother, where they all grew up on Gun Street in London. Later as adults, when spouses came along, the fun, love and laughter continued, such as the famous night to remember, when Gary walked a goat into the living room, to wake up Hugh, who was fast asleep on the couch, having had a few too many drinks. As time passes, families grow, and life changes, we don't always visit as often as we should, but Gary was a wonderful brother, and those memories will always remain in my heart. May you rest in peace, Gary, and may those left behind take comfort in knowing how much he loved his family.
