    Patrice, it’s Brenda from the Royal Bank days in Calgary. I’m so very sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. Fran Sterling told me and sends her sympathies as well, along with Lori Bates. I’ll always remember Jack as such a gentleman and your true love. I’m proud to have known him during that time years ago in Calgary. We’re thinking of you. Lots of love and hugs.
