Condolence from Margo & Borden Hanley on July 8th, 2010 6:23 pm

Valerie, Neil & Nicholas: We have thought all week of the right words to say – but the “right” words just don’t come to mind. We are truly heartbroken over this tragedy, Peter was a true part of our “family” from the garage and we will miss him so much. He was always popping in to visit whenever he could – and always had to tease a bit on his way. His laughter will not be forgotten and his devilish ways cannot be duplicated. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Hold on to the memories of good times – they will help get you through this troubling time. Love to you all.
Margo & Borden
