To Marg, Ron, Dan, Steve. I cannot express how saddened I was to hear the news about Colin. Please accept my sincere condolences. Thank you also for the great times we had hanging out at your house and our Ottawa Musicfest Trips. You are so right when you say "Section 3" will never be the same again. See you guys soon to remember the good times we had with your dad.

My memory of my Uncle Colin is that I thought he looked a lot like James Bond (Sean Connery) when I was a kid. A very kind man and will be missed. My condolences.
