Greg Giles posted a condolence
Monday, September 23, 2019These are FaceBook condolences from Dad's former students and friends. Julene Hodges Schroeder Dearest Greg, I just read the news about your dear, dear Dad this morning. It really hit my heart. Especially after the most touching picture EVER that you posted the other day of him praying with Mr. Wallace. I had to get out my book and read pp.186-7, my funny story of him helping me with Science (what a brave man!!!) when I took it by correspondence in grade 10. And I thanked the Lord so much for him - all his fun, but especially his kindness. Wow! This hits right in the heart. I pray so much for you and your brothers that God's comfort will be extra special and tender to you. Please know that we will all be praying for you. I miss him! Love and prayers to you all! This morning, I just read where a very dear, funny, smart teacher, Mr. Giles, and especially a KIND man passed away yesterday. I got out my book, "Under An African Sky" and just had to re-read a funny story I wrote about him when he was so kindly tutoring me in Science in grade 10. It's on pp. 186-7. Interestingly, his son Greg had posted the sweetest picture just the other day of his dad, Mr. Giles, praying with (my grades 8 and 9 teacher) Mr. Wallace. Heaven welcomes a person who was loved and is now missed by so many. Enjoy your well-deserved rewards for a beautiful life, Mr. Giles! We'll see you in a little while! Mimi Rutler Tears falling as I write this ....Dear Mr. Giles is gone. So silly of me to cry, since he is rejoicing with the Lord. He probably had no idea how much he was loved. I love to think about my Dad greeting Mr. Giles in Heaven! Della L. Vank Tyrrell Oh Greg - such fond memories of your dad. Especially during my early years at Camp K. and all the 'Uncle Ernie' stories. My sincere condolences to you and all of your family during this time of grieving the earthly loss and presence of your father. Valjean Emmel Nelson I’m sure you will miss him - but think of the company he is in now! Doug Koop So sorry. It was a privilege to know him. His appreciation of nature was contagious and instructive. Please express our condolences to the Giles' clan. Becky Ely Young I'm so sorry! Mel Middleton So sorry to hear this. Your dad was a real inspiration to so many of us at Bingham with his love for science and us kids. May God give you His strength and comfort during this time. Elizabeth Taylor Sorry to hear about your Dad. A great inspiration to those who knew him. Prayers & love. Janet Middleton Hicks I remember him as a very kind and wise man. He will be missed. Praying God comforts you and the family. Darla Bailey Davenport Oh Greg. I'm so sorry. Prayers. Amy Frith Ferguson So sorry Greg. Dave Rogers Sorry Greg! Your Dad enjoyed a special place in my heart. I'm sure he's enjoying the presence of the Lord. I know you're missing him. I'm sorry for your loss. Wish I could put my arm around you and give you a hug! Linda Dallimore-Hollywood Sad news because he will be missed here. I remember great times with your parents - so many memories! Deborah Turner Oh, I’m so sorry, Greg! I truly enjoyed your dad. Memory Eternal! Lynn Emmell Overlin He has looked forward to this day for a long time.. the day he meets his Savior face to face Wolfgang Hagen Some day we'll meet up yonder. For your dad its a dream finally come true. He doesn't want anyone to be sad. Sylvia Ann Rogers I’m sorry to read this! Surly a great loss for many of us. I only learned to know him as an adult, and had limited time knowing him but every visit was a blessing that was evident of his love for God and people.My condolences to you Greg, Glennis Kendrick Giles and your whole family Scott Lycan So sorry for your loss. I so value my time talking with him; a lifelong learner, a "doer" of Kingdom deeds, a bright and adventurous spirit, and a kind heart. Al Bailey Wish we could be there to celebrate your dads life. Great memories of outdoor camping, swimming at the gravel pits, etc. Prayers are with you. Susan Shuttleworth Verbridge Loraas So sorry to hear this Greg. Praying for you all. “ Today there’s sorrow, but joy tomorrow” he is indeed “ safely home” Chuck Anderson So sorry to hear that, Greg. You and yours are in our prayers during this difficult time.

Friday, September 20, 2019Whether a star in the skies, or some scat in the soil, Ernie could identify both. He was a lover of God and of God’s creation. He was always a learner, and thus ever a teacher of the realities of this world, and especially of the revelation of God’s Word. He was Uncle Ernie to kids of all ages. He was a pastor’s friend - loyal, trustworthy and forthright - and so for a treasured time at Riverside he was my confidante, my counsellor, my encourager, my friend. Thanks be to God. To Glennis and to the Giles boys and their families, my love and sympathy in your season of sorrow. Gord Gooderham
