    Aunt Margaret, Barry, Julee and families, I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Mark. My Mom loved her big brother. She talked about him and all their escapades as children, including bringing in the cows while bareback riding, having races in the field with the horses and Mark always winning. Mom and Dad so enjoyed their holidays with Uncle Mark and Aunt Margaret. Arizona held fond memories of card playing and general cavorting with their fellow snowbirds. The bond between brother and sister was greatly evident at their final meeting in Saskatoon, where Mom and Mark both reminisced about their childhood and the good times they had together. We are very sorry for your loss of beloved parent, grandparent and husband. Hugs, Colleen, Mark, Lauren and Liam
