Sincere condolences to Angie and daughters. Bessie is fondly remembered as a dedicated worker and leader who was knowledgeable in his craft. One who would always share a good laugh, dignified yet down to earth, and one who could not be outdressed - always dapper.
Your presence is missed but moreso your absence is felt! Rest in peace dear colleague.

My sincere condolences to Angelina and Patrick's daughters. I had the pleasure of working with Patrick in the Special Loans group at CIBC FICB from 2009 - 2013 and we kept in contact after my departure from work. Patrick was a hardworking, honest and considerate individual, and became a good friend in addition to be a workmate. Rest in Peace my friend.
