Condolence From: David and Sherry Shrives
Condolence: Dear Rod and family
We are very sad to hear of Melanie's death. It is particularly sad, as she was full of life and had more things to do. Her accomplishments are endless...your four accomplished children, her support of St. George's, her charities, her amazing bridge skills. I still think of the delicious Christmas Cake I won at the Silent Auction for OSPS, with icing!and packaged perfectly in a Christmas tin. Keep well. Love the Shrives

Condolence From: Kevin McEwen
Condolence: Dear Uncle Rod & McArthur Family,
Early on when my Dad and Rod became Dentistry partners at the University of Toronto, no one could ever imagine the success, bond or memories their families would share.
From camping and cottages, to ski vacations or a trip to the Toronto Zoo. We we're tight. Even though many years have past and time rolls on, these memories are fresh and warm. I hold them dear to my heart. I hope they comfort you at this time God has given us to reflect. "Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results." I think Mel is the perfect example of this...With my own challenges in life I cannot imagine what it takes but, True Friends will help you stay on track and never forget.
Love Always
The McEwen Family
