Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Porky was the sunshine in our neighbourhood and specifically for all of his closest neighbours and friends who experienced his light on a daily basis. His currency was his his sense of humour, his huge heart and his never-ending helping hand to anyone in need, while never having to be asked. While we only knew him for the 4 years we've lived here, our lives will be forever touched by his kindness and care of others. Porky was meticulous about everything he worked on (for himself or others) and was the life of the neighbourhood parties. He took care of us by bringing in our garbage bins every week while we were at work and came by to share the load or lend a chuckle when we were outside working in the yard. Our hearts hurt but are full just the same for the joy Porky brought to our lives and to all who knew and loved him. We are forever grateful for our 4 years and will think of him with fond memories for the rest of our lives. Delores, we are truly here for you and are standing with you during this unexpected and difficult time. Our hearts ache with his sudden passing, but we know his spirit lives on without pain, sadness and uncertainty. Until we meet again. Love your Charleswood neighbours, Nicole & Franco - Posted by: Nicole Hrehirchuk & Franco Costa (Neighbours) on: Sep 27, 2022
