I’m saddened by the passing of Grease, a good friend to many and partner of our executive secretary Patricia.
Every once in a while, you meet a good man. Kind hearted, supportive and brave. Grease was that man!
Pat and John lived a long time in Ottawa before coming home to Nipissing. They raised two very fine young people, Suzanne and Ian. Together they built a beautiful home in Yellek.
However, in my sadness there is a feeling of comfort. That the Spirit will be looking out for him. He’s not in pain no more. And I’m sure he’s riding on that great Harley Davidson in the sky.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all: Pat, Ian, Suzanne and especially John. We will never forget you, Grease.
