    Definitely worth looking back and thinking of the good times and good stories of a life cut short.
    James, you were a wonderful and caring parent.
    That is the one major thing that I remember.
    Time heals the pain.
    I hope that you don't mind me posted the picture.
    Very best regards to you and your family.

    Your daughters must be really grown up by now.
    And you are still doing the "chip" thing.
    Every time I see a package of Cavendish product I think of you.
    And a lot of special happenings have taken place in your city over the past several years.

    Wow, that picture brings back memories, it was his last day of radiation therapy, 40 sessions finished, and our team was in Halifax to play a game and they came by with the team bus and picked up Dianne and Chris and broughth them to the game. He had them all sign his radiation mask (he had to wear the mask during the session to keep his head still why they radiated his brain tumour) The team was down by a few goals going into the 3rd period and the coach spoke to them about what was important in life and some people (Chris) have bigger issues than playing a sport they love, and they rallied and won teh game, Gave the game puck to Christopher and returned them to their lodging as he has chemotherapy later that week and would not be going home (300km away) for another week or two.

    Time heals all pain, but there always be a big hole in my heart

    One daughter is married (the younger one) and lives about a 10 minute walk from our place, the other lives with us still. They both work at Walmart.

    Still making french fries but that is coming to an end soon, this year probably will be my last. Right now waiting out this Covid thing. Grateful to have a good job during these difficult times.

    Summerside markets itself as a sports entertainment site, we are 3rd in Canada for populations under 50K for hosting events.

      Hi James, I am relatively new here, but wishing you well. That photo puts a big smile on my face. Didn't know we had a celebrity on here! I'm in the US, but live close to the Canadian border. I have often shopped in the grocery stores of Southern Ontario and am familiar with Cavendish French Fries. I cannot wait until the the border between our two countries opens up again because I enjoy daytrips exploring Canada. If I ever get my long distance driving ambition back again, I'd love to tour Atlantic Canada. Stay well!
