Sad news: Graham's dad
« on: January 07, 2020, 08:00:00 pm »
I am taking the liberty to post this news.  I received a call from Graham today that his father passed away last week at the age of 91.  Graham would take his dad to Rogo field several times each season for a change of scenery.

His obit:  https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/thestar/obituary.aspx?n=donald-graham-mcnicol-don&pid=194914707

Strength Graham from all your friends at TEMAC. :'(

Frank

Hi Graham. I enjoyed meeting and looking after your dad Donald. He was a very nice man with a good sense of humour. Having lost my Dad not long ago, my thoughts are with you my friend.
God Bless
Rob

Dear friends,

Thank you for reaching out with your kind words of condolences and encouragement.  With weather fitting for the occasion, we had a lovely service yesterday, complete with dad-approved live music.  "Snowballs" Andy Hoffer dropped by, perhaps on his way back from the field?

I do apologize for the tardiness in replying as it has been a rather busy few weeks.
Your friendship and kindness are so much appreciated.

Graham
