    I was sad to the have learned the passing of your loved one Garry Baird. I met Garry on several occasions when I lived in his dear Mother and Fathers large rooming-house at 825-4th Ave SW.
    I use to talk quite often with Garry and his late brother Gordon. His Mom was a Great lady and also talked with his late Father when he was a Commissionaire at the Royal Hotel.
    It has been about 48 years since I saw Garry and his family last. I do remember him very well though and found him to be a very sincere, kind person.
    May you always have the greatest
    memories of him. He sure looked a lot like his late Mom and Dad.
    Van (As they knew me}
