    • Sheila Dudman Posted 2024-01-03 8:53 pm

      Dear Myrna, Barry and Shane, please accept our sincere condolences. Lyman is at peace now – he suffered from bad health for way too long. Lyman was quite a character and as first cousins we were always teasing and tormenting the hell out of each other. He had a good sense of humor and we had so many laughs and fun memories over the decades. I will truly miss him. May God give all of you the strength and courage to get through this most difficult time. Our hearts are with all of you. Huge hugs and love from Sheila and Brian. xoxoxoxox

      Dear Myrna, Barry and Shane. My sincerest and most heartfelt condolences. Lyman was truly one of those salt-of-the-earth people. He had a great sense of humour and I remember the many laughs he and my mother and all the other cousins used to have. The stories they would tell! I know this is not an easy time, but take solace in knowing that your dear Lyman is now one of the Lord’s angels. He is now in good hands. Now is the time for the rest of you to love and be there for each other. Neil
