    I just found out about Dad’s passing on Friday. My heart goes out to you all. I have a lot of fond memories of our many talks and of him being so proud of his handywork around the cottage and his home. Peace be with him.
    Love Linda xo

    Uncle Doug was a wonderful man. Memories of our families getting together at Christmas and at the lake are always filled with smiles and laughter.
    We will miss him.
