Dear Marian, Erroll and Alana,

Our family is overwhelmed with sadness in the face of your loss. I will always retain warm and vivid childhood memories of Simon as a smart and kind boy, gleefully playing with your dog, “Pepper”, entertaining us with music, and being a protective big brother and a devoted son.

We can only hope that you continue to be nurtured by your loving memories of Simon.

With love and heartfelt condolences from our whole family,

Adam
