    Dave & family,
    Sorry about your dad. What a generation they were. Those were the days, forty or fifty years ago back in the old neighborhood. We lost our Dad in 2005 at the age of 87. He too served overseas (R.C.A.F.) for all of WWII. He managed to live 50 years in the Glamorgan house even after the 1988 passing of mom until he moved into the Colonel Belcher. He like it there, too. Again, condolences to you and yours across space and time.

    Johanson Family,
    It was with great sadness that we found out today that your Father passed away. We have been singing at Canyon Meadows Seniors lodge for the past two and a half years. Seeing your Father was always a highlight of those monthly visits, so much so that one of our sons once referenced how most of his best friends live at the lodge (he was 12 at the time). Bill never missed our times there and was always full of life, smiles and stories. We are sad for your and our loss of one of Canada’s true heroes! He will be missed!
