Dear Diane and Family,
I'm descended from Harold Gilday of Toronto. I met you at Diane and ??'s wedding in Toronto. They had their reception on the lawn at their lovely home.
I enjoyed meeting you and David that day, and remember him as a very warm and engaging man. I can only imagine how great the loss is for you. I feel sad to think that he is gone, and send you loving thoughts. I'm so sorry.

Dear Diane and family

I was so sorry to hear of David's passing. I remember a golf holiday in Florida when we were all beginners and David was so positive and fun to play with . He always had a warm smile and hug when we meet on occasions many years later. I know he will be missed by so many.

Diane and the entire family,
We have so many fond memories of David, whether at the Mulmur property or on ski trips. He was a special man who helped so many people throughout his life. He will be missed.
With love, Gerry and Carla

So very sorry to Diane, Sean, Neil and Keith. He was an amazing man! I have many fun memories with the entire Gilday clan at our cottage in Muskoka. I hope him and dad are up there playing a round of golf. Perfect photo of him!

My deepest and sincerest condolences to Diane and the whole family. David was always someone I truly admired, although he was my boss, I saw him as a mentor and a friend. He encouraged me to further my education and for that I will be eternally grateful.. he will be sadly missed. RIP David
