  2. Noel & Margaret Brien :

    Dear Betty and family: We both have known Gordon since 1955 when he and we were single and he was studying in Toronto at Chiropratic College. His committal to the Lord Jesus and His interests were admired and appreciated. It was a joy to reconnect with him, and meet you and the family, when we moved to Calgary in 1972. You have all been in our thoughts and prayers during the trying years of his illness, and we rejoice with you now that he is “with Christ, which is far better”.
    May the Lord Himself give you to know his strength and comfort now and in the days ahead. Be assured of our prayers, love and sympathy. Noel & Margaret
