Aunt Frances, I'm with mom now, reliving some memories of Uncle Ron and our many wonderful visits to Ottawa over the years. He was truly larger than life and lit up every room he walked into. He had such an impact on so many people, and has left a vast void. -Michael and Jeanne.

Dear Mrs Elliott and family, I am sorry to hear about Ron's passing. Despite all the health difficulties and challenges , he was always cheerful and faced them bravely. He suffered greatly but complained very little. He was ever so proud of his family. I will miss your visits to the clinic. The jovial laughter and witty exchange, will remain with me as a fond memory of him. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. -G. Hajjar

Grampie at the Reunion having a blast and chatting to everyone. I miss you so much already grampie. Some of my greatest memories with you are: you at the Acadia lobster fest and how proud you were of me, but also being 1 of 2 from the oldest class there, when you did a magic trick and threw a glass of water in my face because you told me to look at the loony, coming in every time we get there saying "what can I get ya" even when your leg hurt, saying "hachacha" every time you put on your jacket or hat, going around the round about 3 times because I begged you too, me brushing your hair with the troll doll hair brushes, you taking me to dairy queen where you got you favourite - a dilly bar, you telling me about what it was like to live during the second world war, stories of life at Acadia, cracking jokes to all the waitresses that typically just laughed along, and finally always being there for me when I needed you. I love you and don't know what I will do without you. My condolences to granny who has been by your side for 61 years of marriage and I believe to truly have not only lost a husband but her best friend. We are all here for you granny. With Love - Seashell

Maureen and family, very sorry for your loss! My heart goes out to all of you during this very difficult time, especially your mom. I couldn't imagine the pain your mom felt having to say goodbye to her true love of 61 years. I hope she finds comfort in knowing that he is now at peace. Hugs to you Maureen and please pass on a hug to your mom for me! She truly was his Angel!

Dear Elliot family I was very saddened to hear about Ron! Although my priveldge of knowing him was brief, when I had the opportunity to speak with him it was always a pleasure, and a highlight of my daily routine. I am glad to have had the time to listen to many stories of his family, in which he was immensely proud of. Please accept my sympathies and know he will be missed by many of us. Lisa

I will always remember growing up with your grampie...I don't have any memories of him without a smile on his face and super eager to see who ever walked in the door...even your mom and me even after all the innocent trouble we would get into...lol. Thinking of him always makes me smile and that is the greatest gift he could have ever have given. He will be missed. ? from Catherine Inderwick Sacks

Dear Auntie Fran and Debbie, Gary, Colin, Maureen and Wendy, I was very saddened to say goodbye to a very special Uncle and a wonderful man. I am happy you were all able to be together to send him off and trust he was more than pleased in that too. Uncle Ron was a favourite person for me and I have very fond memories of him. Always interested and always interesting, whether I was a child, teen or adult he was curious and engaging. He was generous, loving and always ready with a joke or endearing compliment. We will miss him and think of him fondly with his binoculars and birds and, of course, we will give a toast with an egg roll as he would expect no less. Thinking of you all. With love, Jaydene and Gord

I was told to write something nice. I kept thinking about the weekend Dad, Vince, Randy and myself spent the weekend at Wolfe Lake. Dad was the only one to catch a fish. It was a nice 3 lbs rainbow trout. The weekend still lives in my heart. Sorry Dad was not in this picture as he was the one who took it. I hold it as a fond memory of my Father and everyone else in this picture.
