Tim, Megan, Dana and Justin miss their Uncle Alex. We all spent many hours laughing and playing together. Your brother-in-law and best friend has missed you terribly. Together you always made our family functions fun. Your greatest accomplishment is your children. There are no words to describe their love for you. They are your gift to me and the world.
Cathy WilliamsMy heart aches not only for the loss of Alex, but the grief that I can't even imagine that both Gail and his family must be going through. I knew Alex and Gail through some mutual friends, Bo and Dave. For the few gatherings that we attended together, both Alex and Gail made me feel like I'd known them forever. He was a wonderful wonderful man. It is a great loss for all. I will never forget his kind and welcoming nature and smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Hugs Gail...thinking of you.....

East Elgin Family Health Team Staff, Aylmer Gail, Our time working together was short but "sweet", thanks to all of your wonderful treats and your warm and caring manner. Our heart goes out to you at this very sad time. You and your family are in our thoughts. Take care Gail.
Shelly, Wolf and Sam BartelMy heart breaks for Gail, Kayleigh, Mark and their families and I am so sad that you have to go through this grief. I travel through London a few times a year stopping in to see my dear friend Gail. Alex and I connected when he learned my sister has similar issues following radiation in the 1970's. I talked to Alex on Monday just last week. During our chat he talked about his love and pride for Kayleigh & Mark and his love and gratitude for Gail. He was so full of love and He seemed to be on his way. Sometimes there is just no explanation for what happens. Remember that Alex's love will always surround you, hold on tight to friends and family that love you and care deeply for you. Love you Gail xxooxxoo
