    Berg Family;
    I have just finished watching Lalla’s Memorial Service on line. I am so grateful I had a chance to almost be there…Thank you. It was wonderful to hear all the stories and see pictures and share that “Lalla” time with all of you. Mom and Dad would always let me know when Lalla was in Saskatoon and coming for a visit to them….they knew I did not want to miss a visit with her.
    Doug and I send our condolences.
