    Dear Griffiths Family;Doug & I would like to convey our deepest heartfelt sympathy to all of you on the death of Mike. We had the pleasure of curling with him in Calgary with the Trans Canada Pipeline Club. Mike was an excellent curler with great knowledge of the game. His sense of humour through the good times and bad was always evident. We admired him for his zest of life. He fought the good fight for many years. May all the great memories you shared keep him in your hearts always. Sincerely, Doug & Mary LeBlanc, Tyne Valley, PEI

  5. I am so sad to hear about Mike’s passing. I have so many fond memories of working with Mike shortly after your move to Calgary. I remember assisting him in his return to work and helping him through the massively heavy mailroom doors. Even then, he always had a joke or 2! My prayers are with all of you.
