I love you Dad. You have always been my hero. You never gave up on me. I will forever miss your contagious laugh, your kind heart, your hugs and kisses, your support, your wisdom, your stories that I asked you to tell me over again so many times, all the times you banged your head on something…and so, so much more. I am so grateful for all the love you gave me. All the Jets games we went to. All the Bruins, Flyers, Jets and Bombers bets we had, I still think you owe me $5.00… I will never forget the time you took me to Brandon, Manitoba and you told the 6 year old me to stay in the car while you dropped something off at a customer’s shop. When you came back to the car, I was crying because I peed my pants. You were so happy I stayed in the car though. I was so happy because we went to Woolco and I got all new clothes. The world lost a beautiful person. But much more than that, I lost you Dad. I will miss you so much. Until the time comes when I see you on the other side, I love you. Love Bruce - Posted by: Bruce (Son) on: Sep 13, 2021

RIP dear Lorne. McDonalds on Kenaston at 7 am for years. Lorne and I became friends over coffee. I got to meet his Bride, as he called her, Audrey. Such a lovely couple. Lorne was a gentle, kind gentleman. Deepest sympathy to the family. - Posted by: JoAnne (Friend) on: Sep 11, 2021
