Gord I met you about 51 years ago on Finch ave. in Van's office. Van and I smoked cigarettes . You had a magnificent collection of pipes. And we have been acquaintances and then friends ever since. You were a unique individual and part of the "last bastion" of the real estate guise of old. We wish peacefulness to your family as a you used to not hearing your voice, enjoying your wit, and missing your presence
