    Wayne and Lynn.
    It was with great shock that I found out about the passing of your parents. My deepest condolences to you both. I have MANY fond memories of the days hanging out at your place. I felt that your parents were like second parents to me. Your parents and I havent seen each other for many years but I am sure that upon meeting again it would be as no time had apssed at all. They were together in life and now together in heaven.

    Again, my deepest condolences to you both from myself, my sister and my Mom Dad.

    Be strong.

  9. My wife Debbie and I would like to pass on our most sincere condolences and sympathy in this time of grief. I served with George for 15 years on the Calgary Fire Department and can’t think of anyone more dedicated to his family, his job and the City of Calgary. He was a true role model in every sense. He was a big man with an even bigger heart.
    It was an honour working with you George, rest well, you’ll be remembered always.

    Brian and Debbie Stahl

    Your Dad’s passing came as a surprise.
    My wife Mary, and I along with many friends your Dad and Mum encountered at Church will remember fondly the contribution they made to our discussions groups and the examples their lives and commitment to each other gave, to encourage us along our own faith journeys.
