The family of Richard Elias would like to extend sincere thanks to everyone in the Saugeen Shores community and especially the residents and staff of Elgin Lodge, who welcomed and extended friendship to Richard Elias, father of Barbara Elias and husband Kevin Orr, during this past five years. Richard passed away peacefully on March 19, 2015 in his 90th year.


Thank you to Dr. Gundrum, Richardís Family Physician, for her care over these past five years. Special thanks as well to all the staff at the Saugeen Memorial Hospital who offered our Dad loving-kindness in his last few weeks. He held on to a firm belief that he would recover and your care helped contribute to his positive attitude.

 Thanks also to the staff at the London Regional Health Centre who made his final days as comfortable as possible. And to Dr. Lindsay Johnson at the Bruce County Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Centre, whose gentle hands provided some relief.
