    Alan Schneegas took us into his home in Sarasota during March break for our early years in North America. He gave us sunshine and relief from the cold Canadian winter. He gave us an insight into a man who was proud to have served his county, his God and his family. he had a generosity of spirit towards our son and let him play on his golf machine and watch shows on his tv. He had golden years in Sarasota and many friends in the Mote Marine and the seniors centre, He faithfully attended mass and embraced the community there. We mpgrieve the passing of someone who gave us a welcome and of whom we were very fond. We send our condolences to all his children and tell you we were proud to be part of his life, Amy he Rest In Peace.
