    Dear Mike & Family

    So sorry to hear of your loss – we know you lost Margaret a few years ago, and now to loose your son MICHAEL as well – words cannot convey how sad we are for your family. Having lost our daughter Tina – our hearts break for all of you. Duane’s parents, Pat and Elenore were great friends of Margaret’s parents, they played cards together and had a few drinks too! Elenore just passed away on August 24th at age 96 – dad had passed away six years ago. Mike – we remember you working for the loto foundation here in Edmonton and what a terrific couple you and Margaret made. We got to know you and Margaret through our parents.

    We are so sorry for your terrible loss.

    Duane & Sharon Patterson
