    Our deepest condolences to Wayne,Cheryl, Allan and families. Pat and I became dearest friends whilst working together at St Peter’s creating many beautiful altar floral arrangements. We arrived in Calgary the same time (summer 1994) and quickly became the best of friends. I have fond memories of shopping, lunches, organizing together the monthly St Peter’s seniors wednesday service club, aquasize and many social times with her and her friend Bert. I will miss her love of life, her singing Irish songs and more recent visits with her when she came to Edmonton to spend time with Wayne.

    Beverley (and Ian) Barnes, St Albert, AB.
