Gloria and family. We are so saddened to hear of the loss of Goldie. He was always such a pleasure to talk to and be around. He was one of the first to make Chris and I feel so welcomed when we joined the Bruce Mines Sno Glyders Snowmobile Club. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers Gloria.

Dear Gloria, Tim, John, Julie and Sandra. I am so sorry for your loss. Goldie was such a character. I will ALWAYS remember Christmas and "Ben Nick". Take great comfort in each other and your memories of him, today and always. A candy cane snap, in a remembrance toast to Goldie. Sigrid
