Sympathies message

  1. We knew Ian to be a warm, kind and gentle individual whose artistic abilities ran deep. We didn’t often get to see each other, but when we did get together, it was always a time of great joy and good food! We’ll miss his big smile, fast wit, and his passion for family, friends, and the arts. Our life was far richer with Ian in it! We send our love and sympathy to Diane and all the family.

    Much love, from Trevor and Jacquie
