    Bonnie and Bryan, I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. Your Mother and Dad were both very good friends to Selina and I. We four shared many an adventure, working together, moving from town to town which even included us living in our house trailer in your Mom and Dad’s yard on the acreage. Your mom and Selina enjoyed numerous trips to Las Vegas and to New York on buying trips for Irene’s dress shop. You both are being thought of with a heavy heart and with fond memories of times past.

    I am living in Red Deer near Kathryn in an Assisted Livng home called Harmony House and doing as well as can be expected.

  3. Bryan, Bonnie and families:

    I was sorry to see of the passing of your Mom. I have many fond memories of her and can still hear her distinctive voice in my mind.

    Our own mother passed away last December 8 and even though she had problems with her memory towards the end, she would ask about Irene; it must have been the card playing, back 50 years ago or so.

    Hope this finds you and your families well and enjoying early retirement or at least, the fruits of your labor.

    Bob Brown
