The family would like to thank the staff at Providence Manor (Sydenham 5) and especially Mary Stevenson, Jen and Dr. Porter for their care and compassion that went above and beyond.
In keeping with Dad's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no service to follow. His only wish is for his loved ones to raise a glass in celebration of his life!
