    To the Hanham Family: So sorry to recently learn that Pat passed away. Always enjoyed chumming around with Pat during our school days through Willow St. to CEC, and as a neighbour. Also, it was always great catching up and chatting during CEC reunions. Both my Mom and I send sincere and heartfelt condolences to the Hanham family. Lynn and Shirley MacNaughton
