My first day at St. Stephen's Anglican church in 1986 was also Rev McKeown's. He said that this was probably the first and last day that all of his children would be in church. He was one of the people who made me welcome in that parish community. I have fond memories of singing in the choir there. Please accept my sympathies. Helen (Graves) Smith.

Dear Pam and all your children, grands and great-grand, I only learned of Uncle Lydon's passing today from my mum, ( Carol Abliston, who got word from my other God Father Brian Shackleton) I am so sorry for your loss! I didn't know Uncle Lydon, (who was my God Father) as well as I would have liked! I always enjoyed getting the Christmas card every year to watch your family grow! I know what an exceptional man Uncle Lydon, was as my parents chose him! We all join together to offer our prayers, thoughts and love, Karen Sullivan

I remember when Fr. Lydon came to St. Aidan's many years ago. His children were very young and struggled with some serious health issues that worried their father terribly. I recall when God blessed him by bringing Pam into his life. But I mostly recall the warmth and kindness Fr. Lydon extended to me as I was going through a painful and difficult time in my life. I will always be indebted to him for that life-changing support. Over the years since, I have bumped into Fr. Lydon and Pam on occasion, and clearly God has blessed these fine people. My sincere condolences to Pam and the family. Rest in peace, God's good and faithful servant.

First, please allow me to extend my deepest sympathy. May the wonderful memories comfort you at this very difficult time. When Rev. McKeown was our next-door neighbour during his ministry at St. James Anglican Church in Hull, Quebec, he very kindly drove my mother and me to the Emergency Department at the hospital in Hull because I had fallen and split my forehead open. My mother did not drive and my father was working out of town. I was approximately two years old. A half century later, I am still grateful and appreciative of his kindness that day. Because I was so young, I could not pronounce "McKeown" so I always called him "Coon." Sincerely, Barbara (Bisson) Hennessy
