Condolence & Memory Journal

George and Margaret Dock were best friends with my parents Richard and Anne Docherty. George was the first person in my life who thought me how to swing a golf club back in was I was at St. Stephens Grammer School. I will always have fond memories of them. I can still hear George saying to his wife in his Scottish acent "Margaret get me a cup of tea please" My prayers go out to Sharon (daughter) and her son for they're loss.

I have so many memories of you and Aunt Margaret and all the good times with Mom and Dad. These are the memories I will always cherish. Now, you are all together again along with the rest of the Dock clan. I will miss you and I am still waiting for my "Sweet 16" Party. Guess that will have to wait until then!! Love you!
