  • I will carry with me fond memories of Uncle Jack. I will remember him for his kind, gentle, loving & good natured personality. There were many times when Uncle Jack would visit at our house with Auntie Elsie & her mother Mrs. Hamilton and John & Janis. Uncle Jack & Auntie Elsie also had us as guests at Canyon Lake at McIntosh,Ontario which was always a treat. It was a wonderful place to be in the summer. My Mom & Jack and their sister Helen grew up out at the lake every summer as kids & I have lots of pictures & stories of them there. I send my deepest condolences to Auntie Elsie, John & Janis and their families. Love Lori - Posted by: Lori Grapentine (Niece) on: Jan 08, 2022

  • RIP Mr. Mortham. My sincere condolences to the family. Our kind neighbour of many years always wore a smile and ready to lend a hand. Very nice to read he had Grandchildren & a Great-Grandchild, whom I’m sure he adored. - Posted by: Tannis (Neighbour) on: Jan 08, 2022
