    I remember Rob he is a really nice guy and he let me take a picture of him and my husband and it was sad when he pass away

  3. Christina says:

    Deeply saddened. I just learned. Rob called it like it was, and this made him a magnet for those like me, who only wish for what is true and correct. Rob said the things we thought but could not allow ourselves to say. God Bless You for sharing yourself with us here. I will always hold your image up high, and aspire to be an outspoken fighter for truth, just like you.

    Dear Rob Ford, you are missed very much and you have always been the Best Mayor who helped so many people. It’s because of kind people like you that make a city great. We have not seen any other Mayor like you and so thoughtful. There is no other like you and you had a big heart…so caring always. You always stood up to the mean, bad peoples- a very strong man you were. You did not give in to these awful ones. You stood up for what you believe and always thinking about the peoples in Toronto – the ones you served as Mayor. You are truly one that everyone could count on. Prayers and strength be with your family. xoxo

    Rob Ford, was the best Mayor Toronto ever had. He helped so many people, he was truly a wonderful man. He will be missed and always loved.

    2 things. I was in a sports bar in costa rica with my wife streaming the toronto mayor election. When rob won i yelled out yeah!!! And then processed to purchased a round of JW Black for the house. Fast forward to dec 23 2013. It was my 25 anniversary on that day. All i wanted was a certificate from the mayor of Toronto Rob Ford to sign the certificate. I started asking for that one thing 2 months before the anniversary. But we all know how council treated him and took his powers away! I sent more emails. I was told not possible. I even sent an email to Doug saying i didnt want someone not elected as mayor to sign the certificate. Never heard anything again. 2 weeks before our big party a large envelope shows up in the mail. Its the 25th anniversary certificate signed by the best mayor toronto has ever seen. Rob Ford.

  13. Kenneth Morgan says:

    Very sad loss, truly a great man against what I would see as an insurmountable odds that he proved he would have won had the medical technology of our time been better. If there is a contribution link to pay for Mayor Ford funeral I definitely want to make a contribution and if you direct me to what section of cancer care and the most discreet way I can make a contribution I qould humbly and with thanks give for such a kind man who listened and helped so many

  14. HoverUAVDrones says:

    Mayor Ford, you will always be the Mayor of Toronto. You showed love to all, especially the people who needed it. We made a tribute video for you, to remember you fighting the leeches and fakes in City Hall. God Bless You and your family. You will truly be missed. R.I.P good sir.
