A Man of Distinction

Peter Moffatt Sandham 1922 - 2011

Dad, I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with you the last few days. We had some great talks and just being together was so comforting. You were such a sweet guy.

He had a wonderful life and was hardly ever sick. He got to stay home till the end. We don't know exactly what he died of other than his body said that it was finished the ride and it was time to go. He didn't have any pain and his last morning he was even joking around with me.

No regrets but of course we will miss him dearly.

One generation is now gone from our lives but not our hearts.

He was a proud Canadian

Peter and Shyrle were totally smitten and spent over 62 years showing their love for one another.

A class act from start to finish.
We love you Dad and will miss you so much. :(
big hugs Patti

Meeting him in person, the biggest impression I got was that he was both a gentleman and a gentle man.
Love and hugs from all of us here, Patti.
