My condolences to Ev's family. Winston and he were good friends and I'm sure he could share many happy memories of times with Ev. I lost Winston October 1st with Alzheimers. Winston built the addition to the family home in Fonthill to accommodate Mardi's Mom. I can remember enjoyable impromptu visits to Mardi & Ev.

I'll miss my Sunday phone calls. We used to catch up on life on a weekly basis. Thanks for touching my life. He seemed to adjust after his wife passed, filling his days with geo-caching, learning to play bridge and trying his hand at painting. The last time Dad (Ev) came for a visit, he and my husband John went for a hike on the trails here in Pefferlaw. They were gone so long, I thought they'd gotten lost. I almost sent out a search party. We hope his journey home is a peaceful one. We raise our glasses to you one last time Dad (Ev). Linda and John
