So very sorry to hear this. I just let my mom know (Judy Chisholm) and she sends her condolences. A lot of memories at the lantern. Mom says now Chuck and dad are fishing and playing horseshoes up there together. Sending our love and condolences xo
I’m so very sorry to hear about the loss of your father Kim. Please accept my condolences and thoughts.
As you know very well, I grew up along side your family. I was best friends with Char we basically were brothers. I met your family when I was in grade 5 public school. Your family means a lot to me and I’ll never forget being invited to the trailer at the Lantern Marina countless times.
I have probably spent more time with your mom and dad than anybody. The best times of my life was at the trailer with your family. Your family is the reason I bought a cottage in northern Ontario. Your mom and dad introduced me to “Muskoka” which I enjoy so much.
I mention the trailer a lot because it was the most time spend with your dad. I remember going down to Brampton to pick him up from work and drive to the trailer as soon as he was done. 2.5 hours or so one way. 5 hour round trip - I’ve probably spent hundreds of hours in the car with your dad
I’ve known your family for over 30 years. The memories and laughs are endless and will live on forever. I still think of the trailer days and that specific area all the time, probably way more than you think.
Every weekend I drive to my cottage I drive past “Southwood Road” or “Kilworthy Road and I can’t help but remember the best times of my life flash by from the years past. It was the experience of a lifetime and that experience is embedded into my life to this very day and your family was the reason behind it.
