I have many enjoyable memories of Mom and Dad over the past years to cherish. The song "The Living Years " by the group, Mike and the Mechanics is especially memorable as I tried as a young man to share the meaning of it with my father. Mom got the meaning but dad didn't. I remember shinning dad's shoes for him, going mini golfing with Terry, mom and dad. Times at Pinecrest Speedway , dad and I would be practicing for his upcoming softball game in the back yard on Lynnbrook drive where Dad would pitch at extreme speed while I would be his catcher . So many nice memories that now over shadow our stubborn differences. I also will never forgot as a young child I asked my dad for a Hotwheels track and cars as he was leaving with Gary to the Leafs game. A few days later, my parents presented me with a brand new Hotwheels set. I was so surprised and happy. So contrary to popular belief, there are many, many good memories we shared.

RIP Lefty! We date our friendship back to mid-60s when Lefty arrived at my high school gym in Scarborough to write about the basketball game. Lefty would unleash his big binder of information on almost every senior player in GTA.
It was a delight when I arrived in Peterborough for 27 years as The Examiner sports editor. Lefty returned to Peterborough years later and our roles were reversed as he sought my cooperation for roles he played for different organizations in Peterborough including the local hall of fame..
