  1. Marion and Dan Gowing :

    Zmago and Elizabeth you are in our thoughts and prayers. What a wonderful lady your Anica was, loving wife and Mother. Many wonderful memories from your 10 years in Burlington, Ontario and it was wonderful to see Anica when I was visiting Calgary. It had been 25 years and Anica welcomed me as if it was just yesterday we parted. Anica touched our lives and was a very special. We won’t be able to be with you but just know we will have you in in our heart and prayers. This country is just too big sometimes when we lose loved ones who are so far away. Love you both very much, Marion and Dan Gowing.
