Dear Sara

This is with great sadness that I have just learned the passing of Guy. Often, I think about you and Guy and were wondering how you were. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the ceremony this week, as I live in Quebec City, but will have a thought for Guy.

Take care of yourself. Drop me a line when you feel up to it.

Guy and I worked together at CIDA for many years. He was always a kind and patient man intent on doing good works. He was such a pleasure to work with. He leaves us with fond memories and has had a life well-lived.

Dear Guy,

I remember when Grandpa John Camblin died and the rest of the family was inside reminiscing, you and I shared a moment of our own playing handball against the garage door, telling stories of our own. You may be the most genuinely kind person I have ever known. A donation in your honor was made to Canada Parkinson's. Rest in peace my dear uncle Guy.

Dear Sarah, we were very much saddened by the passing of Guy. I fondly remember working with Guy on the desk and then the time the four of us shared in Bangladesh. He was unique in the field of development; filled with passion, empathy and a profound desire to make life better for the poor. In this he succeeded. We are too far away to attend the mass, but are with you in spirit. Sincerely, Brian & Virginie
