    Chris, This evening I was looking at old pictures with my daughter, Elizabeth, and I showed her one of you and Verne from the early 1950’s. I told her that I had lost touch with both of you and she found Verne’s obituary online. Verne was my cousin Olga Hancock’s daughter. I am so sorry to hear the sad news and I send you my condolences. I will remember Verne and you in happy times in Calgary. Todd Olsen
