    Just a little fellow when I knew him but he was a great little fellow to Graham and myself those early years. He had seemed to have a smile on his face.
    My condolences to the entire Knowles family – it has been good to have known and met you.

  2. I am a social worker in emergency at Rockyview General Hospital, and over the years, I worked with Jay on a number of occasions. I met him again more recently in emergency, and I saw his obituary yesterday. I am so sorry for your loss, and I’m sure you didn’t expect to lose Jay so quickly. He was very young. I liked him and we always enjoyed each other, and I’ll be sorry not to see him again. Again, sorry for your loss.

    Dear Vi, Hali and Heather & Family,

    I was reading the paper and noticed Jay’s name and was surprised and saddened to find out it was indeed your son. Such a terrible time of the year to lose a loved one. I trust you are doing well at this difficult time. Since I do not have your address I thought I would send you our sincere sympathy through McInnis & Halloway.

    A voice from the past but I think of you often Vi and you are in my thoughts at this difficult time.

    All the best to you and your family,
    With Sympathy from
    Margaret & Joe (Hodorek)
