As an expression of sympathy memorials to the IWK Children's Hospital would be gratefully appreciated.

Edgar was so well-known in Tignish and area, and due to the Covid 19 restrictions a virtual drive-by will start at 9:30 a.m. Monday, from the Rooney Funeral Home to Tignish, turning right on the Chaisson Road, down to the Tignish Run where Edgar parked his Boat, then back down on Dalton Avenue to Philip Street, then over to Maple Street, past his late residence, then to St. Simon and St. Jude Church, for the funeral mass at 10:30 a.m.

The family would like to thank everyone who parked along the road to the Run and participated in the Honour Guard. It is very much appreciated by the family.
