Julie and I first met Fos when he visited his grandparents cottage up here in Madoc, Ontario. He quickly became a close friend and we always looked forward to his yearly visits. He was a gentle and generous man who always had a kind word and a big welcoming smile when he returned to his "Canadian Home". He will be missed.
