    Hamilton Family
    We would like to express our deep sympathy in the passing of your dear mother and grandmother. I developed a true friendship with Gordon as a fellow geologist in my first job in the oil and gas industry. We would often meet Margaret and Gordon in restaurants or shopping malls and Gordon would take great delight in greeting our young daughter. We send our love at this time of sadness.

    May and Barrie
