    It seems like only yesterday that Joyce and I played together at our parents farms, went to school together and later worked in Calgary sharing a residence with Gerald and Ada.
    Larry, I can’t imagine the difficult time you have had this past year and what you are going through now.
    Our heartfelt love and sympathy goes out to you and your family.
    Sincerely Terry & Sheila Dexter
