    "It's hard to believe a year has gone by. I think of the woderful visit we had with you all that July, we talk about it often and are so glad we made the trip. Ian had gone to out-patients with pain in his back but being the trouper he was showed us such such a great time and never complained. Little did we all know what was ahead for him. He was such a wonderful husband and father, you have wonderful memories to hold onto. Know that we are here for you always! Wishing we could be with you today! Love and hugs from here! xoxoxo"

    "Its had to believe its almost a year since I lost such a great uncle. Not a day goes by without me thinking of you or something reminds me of you. You were always a great help if I needed something or had a question but you always said "your a smart girl & you can do it, always go with your first instinct". I listened to you because you always led me in the right direction with good advice. I cant thank you enough for everything you done from the day I moved to Fort McMurray. Love and miss you always and I wish you were here to meet Parker because I just know he would love you. RIP always. xoxo"

    "Not a day goes by that I do not think of you with smiles, tears or both. We tell our stories of you with a longing and a joyfulness for all you gave us. Colin will always know you and your gifts of laughter, playfulness and a way of teasing that let a child know they were wrapped in love."
