I was sorry to see Rev Ferris had passed away. I know it will be hard for your family. I knew him when he assisted Rev. Nethery at St. George's in Thorndale. He was wonderful. The bible study group which he started continues to meet weekly. We all loved him. May God's peace be with you and you family. Linda

We were informed just today (Jan 5) about the passing of Mike. Saddened is the feeling initially but is overtaken by the living legacy that Mike and Rhonda made to so many young people that came under your watchful eyes during the Baffin days. Mike was a mentor, friend and living role model of what caring and believing in people truly means. Mike's contribution will stand the test of time.
In fact we had thought about Mike and Rhoda leading up to Christmas this year when we heard on the radio Grandma Got Run Over BY a Reindeer. All the memories came flooding back - thank you to all the Ferris family.
Andy and Margaret.

I just heard this morning from friends in YK. We haven`t been in touch for many years but Mike was a big part of our Frobisher days that I remember so fondly. Rick and Mike started at Dept of Local Govt just 3 weeks apart in 1979, we were also neighbours and knew the kids in the early years. Mike is with Brent now, may he rest in peace. My sincere condolences to Rhonda, Kerry and family. Sue Douglas, Orangeville

I will always reemmber Gustavo's cheery attitude, in life, work, friends, everything. He was always fun to be around, a ball of sunshine when he walks into a room. He would always catch me up on life and his parties. We worked together in Southwestern and although the job can be very stressful, he always made it sound fun and enjoyable. Overall, Gustavo was a great friend, to everyone. He would always support a friend in need and always there to help celebrate someone's birthday. I knew that he cared for his family a lot and wanted the best of both worlds: Vancouver and Thunder Bay. We miss him very much in Vancouver and he definitely made an impact on me. He was one of those fun guys you could talk to when you are feeling down and he would cheer you up by cracking a joke, and he was also the guy who you could just spend a whole night talking and laughing with. He made things so much brighter by his presence. It is sad to think that it was only yesterday he came over and enjoyed a wine party at my house. It's sad for him to leave so early when I feel like we were just touching the surface of our friendship. He will definitely be missed. Rest in peace Gustavo, know that you have many friends and families that you've made an impact on and will never be forgotten. Thanks for being a great friend. Love you always <3My heart goes out to Gustavo and the Argueta family.
