COVID-19 restrictions have really prohibited a proper send off for our father, Manuel Arruda. We are extremely touched by the outpour of love and support by so many, both near and far. As a way to celebrate our dad, before he reaches his final resting place we have decided to have a tribute to him immediately after the funeral mass. We ask that friends and family members that wish to participate in this tribute, to line a designated area of the funeral procession route and honk and wave as we pass. It is a celebration after all. The procession will leave the church at approximately 10:45 AM on Tuesday December 29th and make its way to the cemetery. We will make our way through The Exhibition grounds along Prince's Blvd. off of Strachan, just north of the Lakeshore. Directly across from BMO Field there are two large and vacant parking lots where friends and family can line Prince's Blvd. as the procession passes. Although not how we imagined it, we would still love to see many of you then, even if just for a passing moment. Unfortunately strict number restrictions at the cemetery will not allow for anyone to follow along with us on to the cemetery after we have passed by. His final procession after the hundreds he walked in. (This spot can be found driving along Lakshore and turning into Remembrance Drive) The BMO field will be right there and the parking lot is off this street entrance). PLEASE STAY SAFE AND WEAR A MASK. FOLLOW ALL COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS!!!!!
