To the entire family, Michael and Mark, I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a truly wonderful and kind man, he cared for so many of us in the Newmarket community, and will be sorely missed. I know that he, his love and joy (and that chuckle!) will remain in your hearts. What a blessing to have known him. Wishing you peace. - Amy T
