Lisa ShortJill, so sorry for your loss. Never easy for sure. I hope his memory brings you peace. Xoxo
Gayle WhiteApril, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Ian. I knew Ian from Goodlife and was always amazed at his dedication to the gym. I did not connect that he was your father-in-law. He will be missed so much by all of us that joked around with him during our workouts. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Kayla MarcouxJohn, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your father. May he rest in peace! Condolences to you and the whole family! Thinking of you all!
Glenn BruderI also knew Ian from Goodlife. He tended to present as very serious, but once you began talking to him, he would break out in the most wonderful smile, and he had a delightful sense of humor. I once jokingly asked him about this "contradiction" and he said "well, would you trust someone who smiled all the time?" Rest in peace, my friend.
Dave & BJ O'ReillyWe were sorry to learn of Ian's passing. Ian was one of the first to welcome us when we moved into the neighbourhood. We always enjoyed our chats with him. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

Suzanne BlairI am so sorry to learn of Ian's passing. Ian was a kind, caring, gentle man with a wonderful sense of humour. While my my husband was ill and after his death, Ian's daily e-mails of funny stories and interesting topics started my day laughing. I will miss him. May he rest in peace. My thoughts and sympathy are with you all.
