Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Our deepest sympathy. It's heard to loose a good friend. - Posted by: Peter Bastians (Good Friend) on: Oct 12, 2021
So sad to see Tyrell's obituary. We last spoke a few months ago after Doreen passed away. Tyrell was always a consummate gentleman. Wonderful memories of accompanying him on photo shoots when he tried to teach me the art of photography, and of visiting with them in their home. I take comfort in knowing that Tyrell and Doreen are together again. - Posted by: Patricia Simcoe-Rosenbaum (Friend) on: Oct 11, 2021
