    I am sorry to hear of my good friend passing away. He was always a joy to be around as I grew up in Cheticamp. Playing ball with and against him was a great influence in my life. His deameanor was what set him apart. That wry smile as if he knew better and quite often proven right. He knew how to strike out the best of batters when playing with Olands, yes he had Alex John’s number. Most of all was that he was always there if you needed someone to talk to. Good found memories.
