  2. Dear Etta and family
    Margaret and I would like to pass along our condolences to you and your family. I don’t know if you recall but I played bridge with Lionel and occasionally would pick Lionel up and we would drive together to have our bridge games. Marg and I also enjoyed a few barbeques at George’s with you and Lionel and the other bridge players. I have fond memories of our bridge games and driving together with Lionel.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this sad time.
    Peter and Margaret Weir

    Dear Etta,
    Our deepest sympathy to you and the Family.
    We were away on vacation with our family and only learned of Lionel’s passing when we returned yesterday. We have fond memories of you both, especially when you attended our Southern Alberta two ball golf tournaments. Lionel was the person I first saw when I applied at the bank and I often recount that I was fortunate , that he had forgot about me while I was taking the entrance exams, and had lots of time to complete them.
    Lionel was very inspirational and always encouraging others.
    Our hearts go out to all the family.
    Ken & Sheila
