  1. Dear Bill, very sorry to see Lilyan’s announcement in the Calgary paper. It brought back many fond memories of the 4 of us acting up at Venture out in the good old days. Hope you are well. Louise is still at St. Josephs hospital, incapacitated and blind. Our prayers are with you.

  3. Dear Bill
    I was sorry to read that Lilyan had passed away. I recall the good times you had with my parents, Ross and Ada Jackson in Mesa, but also the memories of Bain Family reunions in Everett and Grand Prairie. We are missing so many of that generation – I hope us younger ones can preserve their stories and values.
    Judy Birtch and family

    Dear Bill,
    We are so sorry to hear about Lilyan’s death. We always enjoyed your company at Venture Out. Lilyan was a great help at the Electronics Club for many years.
    Both of you did so much to help VO.
    We are going again this year. Bob was 81 this year and has slowed down physically. He cannot walk very well. No more sports for Bob which is sad.
    We both wish you a good winter.
    Love to you, Pat and Bob Sinclair (South Surrey)
