    My deepest condolences to you all. I always had a good laugh around your Dad and I always felt welcome at your home. He was easy to hang out with and I remember thinking how fun your summer trips to the Island must have been with him. I’m so sad for all of you that he’s gone. I’m glad to have known Mr. Draper <3

    Jean, Gillian, Jane, Lynn, Craig & family,
    I read with sadness of Alan’s passing. I remember all of you with great fondness when we were neighbours on McFarlane Ave many years ago. Alan and his Volkswagen van with all of you packed inside I will always remember, garden hose fights, happy, happy memories. McKenney Creek Hospice have exceptional staff who take great effort to help their patients and families.

  7. My condolences to all of you.
    Mr. Draper (as I only knew him) was a kind man. I was happy to see Jean and Alan walking on many occasions along Harris Road and glad that we were able to reconnect as I had fond memories of both of you.
    May your memories of Alan keep you at peace with his departure.
