  1. Dear Sandra:

    We are all thinking of you during this difficult time. Your mothers seems to have been an extraordinary woman from her early military career days to the last days when she showed such dignity. I am sure the tree planted in her memory will be strong– and symbolically carry on her deep Alberta roots.

    My deepest sympathy to you and your family, Lynn
