Emiko, George, Anne, Grace, Gordon and families, I am so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. All of my best childhood memories include uncle Johnny and auntie Lois and all of the kids. So much love and laughter. I remember uncle Johnny’s soft voice and always looking forward to a family get together. Love to you all. Susan
My deepest condolences. My thoughts are with the entire family
I called him Uncle Johnny.
When I was about a year old my parents had to leave me for a week to be babysat by Uncle Johnny and Auntie Lois. They were our neighbours. It seems that I adopted them as my new parents and refused my mother’s open arms when she returned. Instead, it is said, that I pulled on Johnny’s pant leg and said “up John”.
All of my memories spent with the Hashimoto family are very fond ones. The friendship did not end when we moved from the Laval area to the West Island. We continued to celebrate holidays together for many years.
Several years ago John and Lois visited our farm in Saint-Clet. They left with fresh eggs and a 10 pound grain fed chicken. You would have thought that I had given them treasures. It was such a pleasure to see the joy in their faces.
Johnny was a kind and gentle man.
My deepest sympathy to Uncle Johnny’s family who loved him so much and were so loved by him. I will always remember his broad smile and deep laugh. Hope he is happily golfing with my Dad and dancing eternity away with Auntie Lois. Sending much love and strength xoxo
I see now that you are finally reunited with Lois, your beloved lifetime partner and my
long time special friend. May you both enjoy the great celebration prepared for you both by our sweet Lord. You both remain in my heart and the heart of Agape for ever.
Much love and gratitude,
Betty and Rod McLeod (Rod your old bridge partner)
