Dear Ann,
We were both with you in spirit while watching David's service. He was such a good man and so loved and our family loved him too. We send you our love as you go through this challenging time.
On your next trip to Canada, let's raise a glass to David together like old times.
He will always be with you in spirit.
May he rest in peace.
Marie, Gus, Katelyn and Alexa
Victoria, Canada

With condolences from our family in Pennsylvania. My first introduction to "Drakes " as Bernard called him, was at the swamp - their second home. He is missed.

Ann and family. Our love is with you in this time of passing. Our memories of sitting on your veranda with you and David, having a #039;proper' rum and hearing tales of the Cricket contests of yesteryear are snuggled deeply into our sympathy and love for you both. Our wishes now are that David rests in the most sublime state of peace. We offer whatever we may do to help you, Ann, with the grief you and the family surely are now deeply a part of.

We love you and hope to see you soon.

Lee and Teri
