Dear Nancy Garth and Family
I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. He was a great family man who I enjoyed meeting over the years. He had quite a sense of fun. I can remember him convincing Mike that the fur around the slippers I had brought for him were from the the cats Muffy and Tuffy and he didn't want anything to do with the slippers. I remember going to Montreal with Garth one time and meeting your parents at there home in Laval I believe. They were such gracious people and he loved his family and being close to his children and grandchildren. He will be missed by many. Take care and know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and that we are thinking of all of you often at this sad time. Love always Arthur and Dale Boutilier
