David in Edmonton (Mary); Katie and Warren in Whitby (Noreen); Cassidy, Terry, Corbin
and Spencer in Bradford (Kelly); extending to their children and their children’s children.
Special mention wished by Michael Lynch to be expressed to (that good looking – just like
me) great grandson, Talan Justin Michael Shiels was treasured beyond words for all the
love, joy and laughter he brought to him over the past year. His loss is felt across the
ocean waves to Ireland, England, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. We
extend our sympathy to his sister Nettie Buckley and family; sister-in-law Peggy
Lynch (late brother Andrew) and family; his late brother Jerry Lynch’s family; his late
brother Danny Lynch’s family; and to Patrick Lynch and his family. Appreciation and gratitude
to the entire Barnard family (Noreen, David, Katie and Warren) for their total devotion
of time, energy and love in the caring and comfort of Michael Lynch. It was not a
duty or burden of obligation but the love of a daughter and family to a dad. A special note
of thanks to Dr. N. Baker and Dr. D. Nicholas of Ajax-Pickering General Hospital for their
personal care and absolute dedication to dad’s every need for the past five weeks. To
Dr. Alan Hoffman, we wish to express our heart felt appreciation for going above and
beyond the call of duty. Thank you for your excellent care over the past twenty plus
years to mom and dad. Friends may call at the OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME, 847 King
Street West, Oshawa (905-721-1234) for a Memorial Visitation on Wednesday, May 4th
