  16. Dear George & Carol and all other family members I have not met – I send my deepest sympathy in this time of sorrow..
    I met Don only once (since he was 7 yrs. old, in Henry’s house in Ramsay-do you remember George ?). The last time we met he was doing the plumbing/heating at the Heritage site schoolhouse moved from the Bearspaw Lion’s Club property across the highway to it’s present location.
