    We were sorry to learn that your mom passed away. We know that she had a full and rewarding life. We were privileged to have been a part of it. She was the only parent that kept in touch with us for fifty years after our meeting at Ramsay School. I think back with fond memories of having you in my Grade 2 and Grade 3 classes. Your mom was always involved and supported you and your brother over the years. She was very proud of you and your family. Elsie’s passing is significant in the lives of many. We have very fond memories of you and her.
    Love, Roy and Irene Pritchard (nee Johanson)
