Condolences

Condolence From: Lynn
Condolence: A letter to my dad
Dad, loving you was always easy even though for the last 25 years from far away in California. I will never forget the love and respect you showed me on my wedding day when I married my best friend and the love of my life.
So, let’s talk about that day. You stepped on the back of my dress and that wasn’t so bad, but then you told very funny (and some embarrassing) stories about my childhood that made everyone laugh especially me. Dad I thought we were going to keep the Donkey Race story a secret? Now EVERYONE knows that I was bucked off as soon as the bell rang to start the race. I’m pretty sure you even bet on the other riders. Dancing with you to the song “Daddy’s little girl” and Mom doing the chicken dance, made it one of the most beautiful days of my life.

Darren loved spending time at the pub with you especially the day at the Printer’s Devil when he asked for your blessing to marry me. You and mom both knew it was the best decision of my life and I am forever grateful for the way you made him a special part of our family. Mom always called Darren her “Favorite son in -law” of course everyone knew he was your “Only son in law” That’s what made it even more special to him.

I preferred to be called Lynn but certainly knew that when someone yelled “Linda” I was in trouble. It was especially so the day I “accidently” clonked Gary over the head with a cricket bat. You and mom never bought that story. Sorry about that Gary I hope you have forgiven me by now?

Paddington Bear stories were always my favorite books as a kid and only a little while ago you told me that you could hear me giggling away in my bedroom. Darren recently bought me a collection of Paddington stories all in one book and it brought back fond memories of us reading together.

You loved to go to the trailer by the lake and I would leave you there during the week to fish to your hearts content. Pretty disappointing when you only caught a few sun fish about 4 inches long! I woke up one night to Ben barking and to find you throwing cups of water at a raccoon to get him off the deck, and when that didn’t work we got out the broom. We have a lot of fun there.

Telling jokes was certainly your forte, unfortunately for me I was at many times a captured audience. I often tried to repeat your jokes to friends but the punch line was never executed as well as you did.

Dad, you really should have taken the hint to stay out of the kitchen when you knew mom was baking dozens of cookies in there. OK who’s kidding “Thousands of them” Many of them were sent back to California labeled with names and hidden in my suitcase. The cookie queen (mom) lovingly made cookie almost every day for her family and friends and even perfect strangers and told them “these are best shortbread cookies in the world”. Dad you loved those cookies too even though mom would mostly give you the “rejects” the ones that were not quite perfect.
“King of the BBQ” was a better name for you and you proudly wore it on your apron for everyone to see. Darren liked to help you BBQ so that the rest of us didn’t have to have our meat as mom liked “Well done” but sometimes when you cooked without Darren’s supervision our steaks got a little more done than that.

So, these are my memories dad and they will be with me forever.

Darren and I love you both so much and it was an honor to be called your daughter and Son in-law.

We miss you and will be forever in our thoughts.

Your daughter, Linda

Condolence From: Geri Bertolo
Condolence: I am very sad to hear of the passing of Mr. Page. Like his beloved wife before him, he leaves behind a legacy of good people; people they both brought into the world and nurtured into the fine souls that mirror them.
I loved hearing his stories. Stories of planes and bravery. Sacrifice and heroism. Tales that only a hero could tell. It was hard for me to ever believe such a soft-spoken and kind man could have lived them, but he did. And his stories were never boastful. They always shone with a kind and humble light.
With love, I say farewell Mr. Page. I pray you are with Mrs. Page now, warm and happy. I'm sorry I never got to say goodbye to either of you, but I hope you can hear me say it now.

XO

FOREVER IN MY THOUGHTS

Condolence From: Nikki
Condolence: It would seem that most individuals do not have the sheer privilege of knowing their grandparents into their adult years. I am so fortunate and so blessed because I have known my grandfather for my entire 27 year existence. I know realistically that in life the world doesn’t stop when a loved one passes away – for you and your family the world certainly seems to stop, but the truth is, the gears of life continue to turn and your forced to try and catch up, whilst attempting to pick up all of the broken pieces.

I’m not good at grieving, although I don’t suppose there is a precise art to it, if there is, I haven’t discovered it yet. I guess my way of grieving is shying away from the world and trying to find something to be my creative outlet. One of those outlets is writing – something my Granddad has always inspired me to do. He used to tell the best stories, just his mannerisms when he would speak, his cool confidence whether it was telling me a short story about Finbar the dog, or when he used to read me my favorite bedtime book– “Too many animals in my bed.” He would always read it to me each and every day like it was the very first time that we were both hearing it. This will always be a special memory that I keep close to my heart.

Granddad had many other memorable attributes – he made the BEST Christmas dinners, and one of my personal favorites the classic “Shirley Temple” with extra cherries. Hold the liquor of course, I was a youngster at the time, and any and all alcohol back in those days was reserved for parfait cups filled with rum-infused cantaloupes or honeydew melon. I’m sure my immediate family can attest to this memory.

Another attribute was his strength. My Granddad suffered through so many types of diseases and ailments that would otherwise destroy a person. I am not sure I have ever met someone this strong or capable of fighting through such travesties. In the last few days of his life, he simply seemed impervious to damage; I guess that’s why that makes this that much harder, it just doesn’t even seem real.

An unfortunate truth is that in life sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. I value each and every moment that I have had with my granddad, some of the best times in my life were spent with him and my Nana. Whether it was attempting to “assist” Nana with her baking, I promise I have since improved drastically. I no longer incinerate every baked good that comes out of the kitchen. Normally, I just end up dropping them all over the floor - Extra flavor, as my Dad would say.

Other times included helping my Granddad in the garden, or rather, digging up fresh rhubarb because to me it looked like a type of weed. Needless to say he wasn’t too impressed with that one, I got a laugh out of him eventually, that’s all that matters. It’s the little things in life, that in the end we cling to, those fleeting moments that hold the most sway over our hearts, even if its a simple memory like accidentally unearthing a perennial.

I will miss you both forever and I will think of you every day, how could I not? I thank you both for instilling me with lessons – to always say please and thank you, to eat my bread crusts because apparently it makes your hair grow, to be kind to others, to be patient (although that trait I don’t believe is ever going to be Page characteristic) I think I became a bit of an old soul because I spent a great deal of my childhood around the two of you, and I wouldn’t change that for the world.

There are no goodbyes when you have an unbreakable bond with someone, so instead of goodbye, these are some of the things that I wish for you:
- I hope that you can have turkey dinner every night, and not have to fight over the roast potatoes like we all used to, because where you are, there is undoubtedly an abundant supply.
- A library chalked full of James Patterson novels for Granddad, and those steamy Harlequin Romance novels for Nana.
- Boddington and Pink Plonk fountains
- Gardens to tend to
- Lost children to care for
- Plenty of “freezer boxes”
- Golf and M.A.S.H. for you to watch whenever you want.
- The Toronto Maple Leafs playing on a constant loop – only their victories of course. (mind you that’s a short loop) #BostonFan. (Sorry dad, I love you.)
- Parks where you can go and feed the ducks.
- Crossword puzzles
- Wendy houses that need to be built
- Trips to McDonalds every Friday at 3:15 sharp each week.
- All of the coffee cakes that you can eat, (including the wax paper that they come wrapped in.)
- Trips to the “Mal” as Nana would say.

These are only a handful of things that I wish for you. Know that none of us will ever forget you. Ever. I hope you carry with you all the beautiful memories you have created with all of your loved ones. Nothing loved is ever lost, and you Granddad, were loved so very much. Thank you for everything. You and Nana will always mean the world to me.

Love you bigger,

-Nikki (Tuppence)
