  9. Bonnie & Brian Veitch/Wainwright EyeCare :

    Dear Reggie and Family,
    Brian, Jon and I would like to offer our sincerest sympathies during this difficult time. We were very saddened to hear the news today. As “pioneers” when sight-testing with the Eyelogic System first started out in Canada, we were very privileged to meet Dr. Dyer. He was a brilliant man, we are grateful to him for allowing us to perform automated refractions furthering the success of our business. I think he was one of the kindest, nicest man we have known. Always such a pleasure to talk to when consulting about our customers. May your fond memories give you comfort.
    Sincerely,
    Bonnie, Brian & Jon
