To David, Nancy and Patsy and all your families, Shirley, Dwight, Dana and myself are all saddened to hear of Uncle Reg's passing. You have our deepest sympathy. He will surely be missed. I always looked forward to seeing him on my trips to Gander and to Hermitage. I will miss our great conversations especially when your Mom was alive. We would sit for hours sometimes getting caught up on everything happening in our lives as well as politics and even the best fishing spots. He always spoke proudly of his family and I am sure that you have many fond memories to sustain you during this difficult time.
