    Grant and Don and families, It was with sadness that I saw your mom’s notice in the paper. I phoned Dad who has been in Langley for some time to let him know. Rhonda and her family are all out there as well. Ian is in Lethbridge and I am just south of Crossfield. At any rate, please accept our family’s sympathies to all of your family and friends. God Bless. I can be reached at if you like.
