Rege and Carol Harren - February 19, 2024

My condolences to the family. Losing my Uncle Ted and Aunt Bert is difficult but now they are together again. I have fond memories of them when I was very young at family picnics and other get togethers. They always were smiling and showed great interest in me and what I was doing. Made me feel good. It was nice to reconnect with them over past few years. Sorry to lose Ted and Bert.

Rhonda Perry - February 16, 2024

Sending my sympathies to Carol, Charlotte and families. Uncle Ted and Aunt Bert meant so much to my Mom, Ruth. Mom always enjoyed her Swiss Chalet or McDonalds meals with them both. Now they are all together in heaven, with Mom just passing herself on January 22nd. Difficult and sad times for us all but hopefully many happy memories to look back on. My condolences.

I am so sorry to hear about Ted passing. I used to run into him & Bertha once in awhile shopping. They were both very nice. I am Uncle Chris’s niece & was there flower girl when they got married. To the family, please accept my deepest condolences. Dwell on your wonderful memories.

Chris Beatty - February 14, 2024

Carol & Charlotte and Family members, my brothers passing was a shock to me. After we moved from Grafton to Port Rowan, we as a family lost track of my immediate family. May God bless you Carol and Charlotte, and all your family members as you carry on.

Melanie Jensen - February 13, 2024

We have lived beside the Beatty’s for 23 years. We will miss the long talks and great stories that we got to share with him. Going out and telling him to quit raking our leaves. Mr Beatty dropping off asparagus, beans and delicious homemade cookies. May you rest in peace you will be truly missed by The Jensen family.

Carol, Charlotte and families I am sorry to hear of the passing of your dad so soon after losing his beloved Bert. I believe he was the last Graftonian of his generation. My thoughts are with you during this very difficult time. Your mom and dad will always be in that special place in your heart where you keep your memories.

Bernadette (Lawless) Gatien - February 13, 2024

Carol & Charlotte I am so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. No doubt the loss of your Mom after all those years together certainly must have taken it's toll. He had a long life & packed a lot into it. Know my thoughts & prayers are with you all at this time. Sincerely. Bernadette
