Katie and family, God bless John Lorne. We were life-long friends from Chapel Hilll, Glace Bay. A true Cape Bretoner known for his love of music. He and I went to Glace Bay to see Rev Bill Rankin (myfirst cousin) just prior to Father Bill's death. Sincerest condolences on his loss to us. Lots of love, Xavier McGillivary, Glace Bay, now Ottawa.

My condolences to Katie and John’s family. My husband ,Bob, and John were friends from way back. Bob often spoke of him and they visited when John and his family moved to the Westmount area. I am sad to hear of his passing so close to Bob ( March 14) - I am sure they will be friends in the great beyond!

My dear, sweet Uncle JL - I will never forget his laugh, his smile and how he would always hum or sing a song, it made me smile every time. His love of life, family and faith is truly inspiring - thank you for bringing so much joy to us all and leaving us with such funny and beautiful memories of you. To Katie and my cousins, I love you and my heart is with you.

I am sad to learn of John Lorne's passing. I am Donald "Brother" MacNeil's daughter of Big Pond. Dad and John Lorne were great friends as children. When John Lorne's brother, Donald "Duke" passed away, I got to know John Lorne. Dad, Jackie, John Lorne and I had lunch at my house. I picked up John Lorne at the Sydney airport and we drove to Big Pond. I found him to be so charming and funny. We corresponded a bit after that and we had hoped to see him again in Big Pond. Love to his family. Lorna MacNeil

Dear Katie and family, I was saddened to read of John's death this morning. It was always a pleasure to see him each year on the Monday of Holy Week at St. John the Divine, as the priests gathered for dinner prior to the Mass of Chrism. We’d get caught up on all the news of the year, from Sarnia, to London, and the East coast. There was no mistaking the love John had for his family, friends and God. He was a good and faithful servant. May he now enjoy the promise made to him~ to enjoy eternal happiness in the Father’s house. Rest In Peace John.

~ Fr. Rick Janisse

So sorry to the entire MacIsaac family for your loss. My deepest condolences. I met John, Katie, Karen, Mary and Stevie in 1982. Wonderful people. Had many good times with them. John playing the piano and us singing Christmas carols. Many, many other good times too over the years. John was a kind, smart, talented man who was very proud of his children. He was an active member of their church, St. John Divine on Baseline Rd. Very saddened by this news. RIP John Lorne. God speed. 🙏🙏💜💜 Picture I posted is from 1991. A karaoke night at my house. Karen, Mary and John singing their hearts out. Great memories.
