  • Brian was our condo neighbour for many years. He was a quiet gentle soul with a kind heart. We spent many hours with Bryan and he was my husband's walking partner for over 3 years. They would meet in the street and walk to Tim Hortons for a bagel and coffee or down to the river to enjoy the scenery. They exchanged lots stories and had many laughs. We were sad when Bryan moved to assisted living but did continue to chat with him on occasion. We were saddened when we recently learned of Bryan's passing but know he led a full and wonderful life. My husband, Bruno is waiting for you at the pearly gates. Hug him for us. Rest in Peace my friend! - Posted by: Lucille Falvo (Previous neighbour) on: Feb 26, 2023
