Condolence: Wendy and family,

Very sorry to have learnt of Alec's passing.
You were both very sweet neighbors.
I always loved your sweet waves and short neighborly visits.
I do hope the days a head bring you comfort of beautiful memories of a precious sole.

Condolence: Dear Wendy,

Today will bring many thoughts and many feelings. Some different and unfamiliar and some known and comforting. Grief can sometimes be painful and unkind it too, can bring comfort and hope. I ask that you allow yourselves to remember Alec with love and fondness and let that love continue to embrace you and care for you. I would ask you also to allow those around to care for you and show you their love. During this time, and in the weeks ahead know that my community of faith are thinking of you and your family and are holding you in our prayers.

We extend to you our heartfelt condolences.

Condolence: Wendy,
We were so sorry to hear of Alec's passing and your loss. Nature's perfect gentleman, kind to people and animals, always smiling, quick to laugh, a twinkle in his eye, and a submariner's gift of grace under pressure. Alec never complained and hid his pain and fears from his friends too well. We didn't know Alec long enough and will always miss him. Love Alan and Susan
