    Dear Marie, Alun’s parents and family,

    Catherine and I are deeply saddened to hear of Alun’s passing. We first met he and Marie several years ago at the Family Leisure Centre curling club. We ended up curling as a mixed team and thoroughly enjoyed our time with Alun and Marie, both on and off the ice. He always brought such a great sense of enjoyment to the game and a smile was never far away. Please accept our sympathies during this very difficult time. We will always remember him very fondly.
    Sincerely,
    Reg and Catherine Curren

    To the Browns
    I’ve known Alun since he was a teenager & I truly believe that he made a lasting impression on everyone he met. At family get-togethers that I had the pleasure to attend, he had an uncanny ability to keep us laughing. His humor and optimism were stellar! To say he will be sorely missed is a great understatement.
    My deepest sympathy & condolences go out
    to you all.
