My Fellow Apprentices and all Veterans,
I received this sad e mail from Bill Beagan this morning.
Please see following link re death of our honored Soldier Apprentice Teacher and Friend,
Mr. Fred Buckland. Mr. http://yourlifemoments.ca/sitepages/obituary.asp?oId=642480
Fred Buckland attended every RCASC Soldier Apprentice Reunion since the inaugural reunion in 1978, except our most recent reunion, last August.
Happy to Meet; Sorry to Part; Happy to Meet Again.
Bill Beagan. Semper Monsteris.
Frederick John Buckland
BUCKLAND, Frederick John - March 12, 1927 to September 20, 2012 Died in his sleep. His extended family and friends mourn the loss of a man who spread joy and light all his life. A Celebration of Fred's life will be held at All Saints Anglican Church, Ridgeway, Sunday September 30 at 2:00 PM. Arrangements entrusted to NIAGARA FUNERAL ALTERNATIVES
As Bill puts it so eloquently, Mr Buckland was a part of every Apprentice's Life for a two year period.
Please see the PDf with reference to our School days. I feel that I can safely say that all Apprentices bid Farewell to Mr Fred Buckland.
With the passing of Mr Fred Buckland another man has moved to the advance party, hopefully to meet up with our departed apprentice brothers, Apprentice Instructors and certainly our other teachers.
May the Lord Bless and keep him safely in heaven.
The sad events that are currently going on in Syria and Iran are an abomination on society as a whole. I add the second PDF which I received from fellow apprentice and friend Bev Beveridge.
Certainly one PDf that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad should read in his, vile words against a tiny democratic Nation Israel.
Please remember our troops and Veterans in your prayers at the Chapel, Church. Mosque, Synagogue or Temple or at home.
