    Dear Bonnie and Family,

    I was sorry to learn of the passing of your father. It is very odd that I was looking at some old pictures from my days in Calgary just this week. Google popped up the link.

    My sympathies to you all.

  3. Sorry I did not contact all the family when I was at the funeral last week. Bill Bell captured much of Jack’s person. I enjoyed Jack’s steady as you go attitude and good humour those years I worked with him in the late Fifties for Honolulu Oil. He was a great guy. Honourable Nick Taylor
