    We offer you our condolences and may God comfort you at this time of grief. I remember Lindsay always making everyone laugh at family BBQ’s and when he wasn’t doing this, he had a permanent smile that was contagious to all.

    I remember Lindsay coming out to our farm, as a young man.
    I was 6 years old and asked him to ‘wait for me’ as I was going to marry him when I grew up. I always thought fondly of him, as our whole family did. We will remember him.

    Mary Ellen,

    May Lindsay rest in peace. He was a kind man and a good friend. I enjoyed his friendship. I remember the many visits he made just to stop by and share a coffee. I will be thinking of you, Mary Ellen, as you begin a new chapter in your life. May your family hold you close, as I know they will.

    We were so saddened to hear of Lindsay’s passing. He was such a kind man and was always so concerned about other people, never complaining about anything. We always enjoyed his company when he did woodworking for us for our store and we miss his bright smile and his beautiful creations. Our condolences to your family.

    Alex and I are sending our condolences to you Mary Ellen and your family. It has been many years since we’ve seen you and Lindsay but we have fond memories of the days we lived in Brampton and were young together with small kids. As life goes friends tend to drift apart and we lose touch. However as I went to school with Lindsay and we were friends for many years I wanted to let you know that we mourn for his passing and that we have great memories of those long ago days. God Bless you and your family and may he soften the burden of your sorrow. Margaret and Alex Thompson
