6 months ago this quiet man moved into our home. Every morning he would stroll down the hall with a bright smile and always a good morning how are you today. As days passed I got to know him more each day occasionally would join in for a singalong or a services. I would visit him sit next to him and he would tell me stories of his family and the things he enjoyed doing.
He was a joy to be around always pleasant and so mild. I will certainly miss my Mr.P. Sending condolences to all his family at this time.

Uncle Gord..or wrinkle the rat, we had called him as kids, was a wonderful Uncle. He made me laugh, taught me to clean my very first crab legs, built puzzles with me and always, always made me smile. He was kind, gentle and loving . From all the family I was able to be close and familiar with, he was it!! Missing you Uncle Gord and will miss opening my mailbox to find Christmas Greetings from you..they were never forgotten and always sent with much love. Here's to remembering a great one!!
