Sheila, our deepest sympathies on the loss of your dad. Growing up in Namur, your mom and dad would pick us up, to go and spend the afternoon at the beach in Lac des Plages. I remember them as being a very loving, caring and happy couple.

I entertain at Stillwater and am very sorry about the loss of my good friend, George. He always wanted to shake my hand and show his strength. Most of all, he would ask me to sing his favourite song, LILLY MARLENE. I came all prepared to perform my Remembrance Day show and dedicate it to George and sing his favourite song. Only then, did I find out that he had passed just prior to that. He did mention several times when we chatted about how well his family looked after him.My condolences to the family. He spoke many times of how well his family looked after him in these senior years. Pat McAlpine- Entertainer

To George's family: I had the pleasure of working with George's brother Bill during his involvement in support of the Cadet organization. In our discussions about the Navy, I was pleasantly surprised when Bill informed me that George had served on HMCS Lunenburg (K151) during WW-II, most probably with my father (another "George" YOUNG). Although it has been many years since Bill and I had this talk, I could not pass up the opportunity to mark George's service and offer my personal condolences to all members of your family. Having seen this obituary on November 11th gives this brief testimonial even more meaning! Be proud of George's service and thankful for his long life. Keep him alive in your hearts as I keep my father George alive in my heart. God willing, they will reunite along with their other shipmates in the larger ocean we call Heaven! Requiescat in pacem. Ready Aye Ready!

Nos sincères condoléances, Sheila! Nous t'avons vue vendredi mais nous ne le savions pas à ce moment. Nous ne connaissions pas beaucoup ton père mais il semblait toujours content de nous voir. Nous en gardons un bon souvenir.

I remember your Dad fondly especially his kindness, openness and humour. I also remember how supportive he was of you. Losing a parent is never easy, losing a loving parent is even harder. Celebrate the fact that you had your Dad these many years and that he lived a rewarding life . I heard that he missed your Mom terribly. Find comfort in knowing that he will finally be with her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God Bless

You talk about it not knowing when it will come. When it does come hopefully there is a little comfort in the fact you had talked about it. Now is the time to be thankful for the amount of time you had with your dad and also knowing he is with your mom, the woman he missed so much and spoke about so much after she passed. God bless him.
