  3. Janet,

    Sorry for the loss of your mother. I have good memories when I stayed with you and her upon first moving to Calgary from Pincher Creek in 1984. I’m grateful for the help she provided to me in getting my start in the big city.

    I will be there with you in spirit at the service.

    My best to you and Will,
