Condolence from Kim Zuskan on August 15th, 2013 9:28 AM

Al very sorry to hear that your Father passed away. I know that you have been visiting him at Parkwood on a regular basis. I didn’t realize that he suffered from Alzheimer’s. I know that it is a terrible disease that robs an individual of the memories of their life and the memories of their loved ones and friends. It must be comforting to you and your family to know that he received exceptional care at Parkwood. Take some comfort in knowing that the people you work with are thinking about you and your family during this time,

Condolence from Gord and Gerry on August 15th, 2013 9:46 AM


Jack had the most infectious laugh and always a twinkle in his eye. He will be greatly missed at the cottage!

Our sincre condolences.

Condolence from Kori on August 15th, 2013 6:04 PM

Edith – over the time that Jack spent at Parkwood, I was able to get to know him quite well. I was shocked when I got to work on Wednesday morning and heard the news of his passing especially when I had just had him up for a walk on Monday afternoon. I was however able to say my goodbyes to him that morning. Jack touched a special part in my heart and definitely will never be forgotten. I will miss seeing you around the hallways. My deepest sympathies to you and your family at this difficult time.

Dear Edith and family,
Mom and dad were saddened by the news of Jack’s passing. Jack was a life long friend to both of them and he will be missed. My childhood memory of Jack are that of a man who seemed to always have a smile on his face and a joke and laughter were never far away.
In looking at the pictures online you have a wonderful large family to help each other through this time.
Bob on behalf of the Stuart Clan

Love Doris and Arnold
