  1. Regina Landwehr :

    Dear Janet,

    My sincerest condolences to you and your family on the passing of your Dad. I happened to read the obituaries in the Herald today – working for the Military Museum in Calgary I try to keep informed on war veterans passing on – and noticed your name among the mourners.

    I wish you strength and faith in life everlasting in these difficult times.

    Kind regards,

  2. I just wanted to express my sympathy for your loss but my very fond memories of “Mr. Low”. I met him when I started teaching, at one of my first schools , in about 1972. He was one of the smartest people I’ve met and we had great chats about education and kids. He felt very strongly about what kids need to learn well and, from this commitment, did not agree with every teaching approach. He said once about one philosophy. “so little for the mind” and that statement has stuck with me for what is it, 40 years. I found out early that it is not just possible to face obstacles for the greater cause of education but part of a teacher’s job. I am so happy he lived to 96. It gives me hope. My heart is filled with warm memories of a person of principle and high standards.
