You were a long time beloved friend, from childhood paper boy, to Silver Bay summers and of late Christmas Eve at Margurites. RIP, my friend. You will be missed.

Met Dale at Siena College. Throughout the years, whenever we would run into each other from time to time, there would be a warm greeting, and always that big smile. Such a great guy, gone too soon. May he Rest In Peace.

Probably my oldest friend! Grew up two doors away from us. I will always remember his laugh! We had many over the years! From crazy road trips, hanging out in Silver Bay Ontario, or just catching up on the phone. I can truly say "You left us too soon"! You were loved by all!!
