  1. Wilma & Family,
    It has been many years since our families have seen each other, but I have many fond memories of the times we had. I was a child at that time but I remember Ross’s gentle nature and how family and friends were so important to him. He was the best story teller and he included everybody when telling his stories. He is the only person I have known to get a ticket on Highway # 2 for going too slow while driving our tractor. What I especially remember is that you and Ross were not just husband and wife, you were best friends and you did everything together. Our family understands the pain of your loss of a husband, father and grandfather. The world lost a really nice guy and we all will suffer a little.
    Nelda Azevedo, (Chris & Joanne), (Mark & Judica), (Donna & family), (Pat & Ken)

  2. Dear Auntie Wilma and the rest of the family

    I just wanted to say that it has been so lovely to see you both everytime I got back to Calgary. You took me in when I had no where else to go. You were both always so cheerful. You were together for a nice long time, 70 years which is a milestone few see. What a gardener Uncle Ross was and so knowledgeable. Always enjoyed his carrots! and the pails of honey for my dad. I was so lucky to have known you both! Auntie, I hope you can be strong without the love of your life. I will be thinking of you and all the family with tears in my eyes. I have some lovely photos to remember Uncle Ross by. Take good care now.
