    Joan and family - I have been thinking about you since I saw the notice of Garth's passing. I did not know either of you well but any friend of Ellie and Wayne's easily is a friend of mine. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you celebrate the life of your loved one and also as you face difficult lonely days ahead.

    My thoughts are with you Joan and family. We shared good times and good friends in business and at raquetball. Garth was a real solid guy - they dont come any better.

    Garth was a friend and next door neighbor who was always willing to help out around the neighbourhood, go for a game of golf, skiing or flying.
    Will miss him a lot.

    My condolences to the family on Garth's passing. I first met Garth when we were both Managers of companies under the same umbrella in Town center mall. He was very generous with his help as I was a new manager at the time and he shared some ideas with me. Later I learned we were neighbors on the same block on the West side. We often chatted after we both retired. My sympathy again.
