Special thank you to Dr. Bob and Jennifer Webster, CCAC, Para-med nurses Anne Marie and Janice, PSW Corey for all your care and guidance during Dad's illness. Pastor Charmaine and Dad's friends from The Church of the Nazarene.  Your visits and prayers lifted Dad's spirits. An extra special thank you to Marie Childerhose (Momma), without you, keeping Dad out of the hospital would have been impossible.  This meant the world to Dad and even more to us.  We are so grateful for you.  

Dad served in the Armed Forces (Army) from 1951 - 1972.  He was in the Hasty P's, Vandoo's, Blackwatch and RCR.  He was on several peacekeeping tours.  Dad served with honour and pride.  He always enjoyed telling stories of his time in the military, and would often say "I wish I could still serve, as it was a Great Life".  Dad was also a huge sports enthusiast.  He loved his Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Blue Jays.  Dad missed mom everyday, but what a gift for both of them on Christmas Day.  Dad we love and miss you.  Till we meet again.  God Bless
