Michael, Cathy-Lynn and Tracey,

Thinking of you at this difficult time. I will always remember Uncle John's zest for life and his kindness to those who crossed his path. In the face of adversity and illness, he never complained and always remained positive. His strength of character is an inspiration to many. May all your family memories of love shared over the years be a source of comfort to you now and in the days ahead.

With deepest sympathy,

Love, Keith & Ruby
