  3. Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of your wife Alex, also to her Daughters, Sons in law and Grandchildren. Anne was a lovely neighbor to me when I moved a few doors down from her and Alex. I will always remember her lovely smile and the good times I had when I was able to have a coffee morning with both Anne and Alex and neighbors at the Coop on a Friday when I was able to make it. Her loss will be felt by so very many people.

    With Deepest Sympathy

    Tina & John Lambie.

  4. She was “Mrs. Kowalchuk” to me, maker of the world’s best Nanaimo bars which I was fortunate enough to be the occasional recipient of. No matter what was going on in your own world, you couldn’t help but feel better when exposed to her beaming smile and always positive attitude. These great qualities live on in Darlene and Sherry. Heartfelt sympathy to you both and Mr. K.
