Heart-felt sympathy to you - Ann and Roger - on the passing of your beloved Dad. Bob and I remember Alick’s wonderfully dry humour and many good visits in Florida with he and our Aunt Barbara. Fondly, Jackie (Low) & Bob Thornton.

I feel honored to have met your father despite the fact it was during his "confused" stage. His kindness and consideration for the well being of others always shone through. RIP Dr. Little

Thinking of you all at this time. My favorite memory of Alick was during our somewhat successful fishing trips to Georgian Bay. So many kiddies sent out with the dad's, while the mom's stayed ashore!
Love and hugs Chris

It was an honour knowing Alick. After years of doing business with him as well as comradery we enjoyed at the curling club and recently at the Garden's of Parry Sound. Alick was truly a gentleman and brightened anyone's day with his kind words and positive attitude and great sense of humour. He will be missed by our community.

My dad is now in a long term care facility but was saddened to hear of Dr Little's passing. He has fond memories of Dr Little and he remembers the love and respect that Dr Little had for his dad. Our sympathy to your family.

My most sincere sympathies to the family of Dr. Alick Little, whom I met a number of years ago at his home in Parry Sound. He graciously entertained us that day, and shared some entertaining stories with us. May his soul rest in peace now.
