I am so sorry to hear of Sandy’s passing. No words can make things feel better right now but I want you all to know that when Amanda and I were going to school and we were inseparable, I always felt at home with you all.

I was so sad to hear of Sandy’s passing but I know he is in a better place now, he was just too sick to remain with us all any longer. I am so glad that Mom & I went to Liverpool to visit him in July and I know he knew us b/c his face lit up and he gave us that biggg smile 🙂 and was even vocal, it meant so much to us both. Bev you were a wonderful wife to Sandy and always look out for your kids first,then you wore the care taker hat for so many years, not just everyone can do that! It shows true love to the end. All of us Leslies had so much fun with you, Sandy & your family all of the years you lived in Cape Breton, we will all cherish those memories. Now Sandy is with all of our family that have passed and is at peace with no more pain . We can all take comfort that he is at rest and now you can all begin healing, Thanks for taking such wonderful care of my dear Uncle. Love you all
