  • Linda Gordon

    Diane, Kara, Lindsay, Barb, Kathie, and extended family: my heart goes out to all of you in the loss of a dear, loving family man, Alex. I so enjoyed visiting with all of you whenever Barb and I travelled to the Island to see everyone while on a shopping jaunt, or just to say hello and have a great pub lunch out. Alex was a charming man, he always made me laugh with his cheeky comments, and he was a true gentleman. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. With sincere sympathy to each of you, and sending you hugs and love.

    Hi Diane and family. We were so sad to read Alex’s obituary today. Our history goes back over 50 years since those evenings parked outside our houses after a date. How has so much time passed by! Sincere condolences from Wayne and Dianne.

    Diane and family, please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. I am not sure you remember me Diane but we worked together many years ago with the Federal Government in the old Post Office building with Family Allowance & Old Age Security. I also attended yours and Alex’s wedding.
    It came as quite a shock to see that Alex had passed away.
    Take care Diane.
