    Chalmers was the father of one of my best friends, Barbara. It’s been many, many years since I’ve seen him, but I will always remember as a very thoughtful and generous man. A good Brit, he never failed to serve Barb and I tea and cookies on Saturday afternoons from the time we were 10 years old. My deepest sympathies go out to Barb, Brent, Jim, Kevin, Lauren, Joyce, and of course, Joy. Love and best wishes, Stephanie (and family)

  5. Hi Joy,
    It was with considerable sadness that I read about the passing of Chalmers. My sincere condolences to you and your family. Although sad, it brought back pleasant memories of that summer in Lloydminster, those many years ago.

    Our thoughts are with you.

    Regards, Ron
