So sorry to hear of John’s passing. Although I hadn’t seen John in many many years I remember him fondly. He was a good guy.

Lilith, the Davisons are with you in spirit during this time. We have so many fond memories of when you and Caroline were little and how patient your dad was when the two of you ventured into trouble. Your dad was very special - so kind and humble - and you are so much like him. We love you very much and pray for you to feel comforted by your many wonderful family members and friends. Safe travels back to Halifax and in the meantime our thoughts and prayers are with you. Phil and Margie
