Condolence: My condolences to Jean and your family. We were neighbors on Eastaff Street. I have many memories of spending time with Bert and Jean and Emily the dog. Although I have not lived in Newfoundland for many years, I remember how kind Bert always was to me.
Please accept my condolences regarding Uncle Burt’s passing. Unfortunately, we are unable to pay our respects in person but know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Uncle Burt was a consummate gentleman, a man of sharp wit, deep intellect, and a man who had a great love for his family - two and four legs mattered not. He truly was the last of his generation and although he passes on - his spirit lives within us.
I remember my last visit to Eastaff with my wife. Uncle Burt was sharper than a tack and we had some laughs. When we left, Uncle Burt and Aunt Jean were together smiling and waving out the window. After all those years, through thick and thin — there they were like two lovebirds glowing.
With Deepest Sympathy,
Jaret Manuel, Anna & family.
Condolence: Dear Aunt Jean, Vernon, Cynthia, Brian, Robert Peter, and families. We were so saddened to hear of Uncle Bert's passing on Monday. We, and I, have so many fond memories of Uncle Bert and the whole family. My memories go back to visits to Bert's Lewisport home as a child, and to many family gatherings and visits to Princess Avenue, LeMarchant Road, and Eastaff. Uncle Bert's kindness, dignity, and wisdom are particularly memorable. I enjoyed reading Bert's memoirs this past year. Our thoughts are with you all as you take time to reflect on and celebrate a remarkable person and his life.
Condolence: Cindy and family. we are so sad to hear of Bert’s passing, please accept our sincere condolences. I enjoyed my brief talks with him about my dad and life in Embree. His sharp mind and speaking ability always marveled me. He once sent my copies of old Millertown Jct pictures. I am glad to have known him, end of a generation indeed.
Condolence: Aunt Jean and Family
It is with great sadness that we received the news of Uncle Bert's passing, but great fondness in remembering our few meetings. Always warm and friendly, lots of stories and laughter. Our thoughts are with you during this time.
