The City Counsellor and former Mayor of Toronto succumbed to cancer leaving behind his wife Renata, and two children, who are all Catholic. To them, his mother and siblings, condolences to you from Vox and Fox.
He was a caring and compassionate man. He loved Toronto and cared deeply about its people. Nothing could destroy Rob in the eyes of the people. I will go as far to say, I loved the guy. Rob Ford was each of us. With our foibles and our demons and our hopes and our dreams. Rob Ford was every man. A kind, lovable more generous soul one could rarely find. I had some dealing with him in his role as Councillor and Mayor. Each time, my respect for him only grew.
May God rest his soul and may Our Lady comfort his Renata and the children, Doug and his mother.
May the Angels lead you into paradise; may the martyrs greet you at your arrival and lead you into the holy city, Jerusalem. May the choir of Angels greet you and like Lazarus, who once was a poor man, may you have eternal rest. Rest eternal grant unto him, O Lord; and may perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
