    Colin,

    I was so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Though it’s been a very long time since I’ve seen her (or you for that matter) I can only begin to imagine the loss one feels when losing a parent. I know you and your family will persevere and wish to offer my most sincere condolences.

    If there is anything I can do, please call on me.

    Colin and family,
    Please accept our condolences on the loss of your mother, Glenda. We were informed of Glenda’s passing and we were shocked like everyone. Glenda was a classmate in pharmacy and a continued friend and colleague while we resided in Calgary. We recall Glenda for her pleasant nature and continued interest in her friend’s activities. Glenda always showed her pride for her pharmacy profession. Glenda made a significant contribution to the pharmacy profession through her 40 plus years working in the field. We will miss Glenda.
    I am sorry we were not able to attend the service as we are in BC for another week. Once again, please accept our condolences.
    Harold and Joyce
