    Dear Derek, Donna. and Ian,

    Please accept our deepest sympathy on the loss of your wonderful, loving and kind-hearted father(& proud grandfather). He was a very special person and a true gentleman. I loved him from the bottom of my heart. He was the greatest Uncle, the kind everyone wishes for and also my hero. I will miss our weekly telephone calls and can only imagine the void his presence will leave in your lives. It is especially sad for Ian who will only know him through the wonderful memories you all share.

    I pray that you find comfort in the belief that he is no longer suffering or in pain and is happily reunited with your beloved mother whom he loved dearly. God Bless you all. With Love, Barbara (Mac Innis) & Roger Lamothe, Christian, Tanya, and /Sarah Zemetres
