    Tony, Nicolette and families: 
    We would like to share our sympathies and heartfelt condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, during this difficult time of mourning, since the passing of your Dad.
    Ecclesiastes 7: 1-2    
    (1) A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death, than the day of birth.
    (2) It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting; for this is the end of everyone, and the living will lay it to heart.

    My condolences to the family of George.  I worked with him at the OSCC55+ for many years.  He was always such a friendly fellow, and attended many Men's Night Outs, SloPitch games and dinners.  He was such a pleasure to know.

    As the Program and Services Director at the Oshawa Senior Community Centres (now retired) I had the pleasure of working with George. He was one of the inaugural members on the seniors Slo-Pitch team. His kind and gentle approach was a real asset to getting the league started. He was also a participant as a veteran in many Remembrance Day programs, telling his story and helping us to understand what serving in the war had been like. While many will miss George, fond memories of the wonderful man he was will linger on.
