Not sure what to say?

The McRae family will always be grateful to Arthur for his great kindness to our late brother Duncan McRae. They were classmates at Brown School and UTS, and both were calle.d to the bar. Several decades later Arthur supported Duncan through a difficult time. They were born the same year, and our brother died on March 28 just past. Sincere thanks for Arthur's gift of assuredness to Duncan and the family. Our hearts and prayers go out to you at this sad time.

Dear Susan
We are shocked at this very sad news.

Arthur was indeed all that the obituaries have written of him. He was a gentleman.

Our deepest condolences to you and your family.

I, and my older sisters, who are twins, took piano lessons from Esme Williams at the branch of the Royal Conservatory located next to Brown School. Although Arthur was 10 years older Than I am
( but a contemporary of my sisters), he had the lesson before mine at 8:30 or 9:00 on Saturday morning. Years later, when I worked at UHN, Michael Baker, who had also studied with Ms. Williams, brought me a picture Arthur had given him of Friday night piano class. Among the students and parents...

Mrs. Scace, so very sorry to hear of Mr. Scace's passing. He was a wonderful person, very kind, funny and generous. I was very fortunate to have been one of his assistants at McCarthy's. We remained very close friends and I often went down to the 39th Floor for a quick visit. I will miss him and his big smile.

Our sincere condolences, Gerry and Carla Connor

I knew Art best at high school, where his intellect, leadership and humour promised great things. Steve Otto kept me up to date about Art and Susan over the decades and I respected them from afar. More recently they because donors to my passion: Farm Radio International, and that support has been deeply appreciated. Love and strength to Susan and family.

To mention just a few: as an outstanding human being, as a highly competent professional, as a leader and as a loyal insightful friend. My heart goes out to Susie and the family as I offer my deepest condolences. Thanks Arthur, you were the best.

With love and best wishes to the family,

Dear Susan

I was shocked to read of Arthur's death in the U of T magazine. I was looking forward to seeing you both at our 6T0 reunion, whenever that will take place.

I am also remembering with gratitude your help many years ago to the CEECT project at Carleton when you gave us a generous grant from the Henry White Kinnear Foundation. That project, having produced 14 scholarly editions of early English-Canadian prose in 12 volumes, finished finally in 2012.
