    I started dating Gord at 16, so I became a “fixture” in the Saunders family over 50 years ago….a man of few words he was intimidating initially, so I will never forget his kind words the night we married, at the end of the night, as Gord and I were leaving, he took me aside (lol “relaxed” after the party!) and shared how happy he was to have me in the family and that Gord had “done well” 💓
    After that I enjoyed his company even when we weren’t talking. He was always good to me, never had a harsh word, and treated our kids with only love and support. Nothing but great memories and blessed to have had him as my father in law. Rest In Peace now Dad – love Lee-Ann

    It was always so nice to talk to Mr. Saunders at the many hockey arenas or The Cove. A great guy, who with Mrs. Saunders raised a great family.
