    Dear Don, Alan & families, We are so sorry to hear about your Father and Mother. I met your parents many years ago when I worked with your Mom at Edmonton Paint & Glass as a young girl.
    They were the most delightful couple.
    Always caring and lots of fun to be with. Although we had lost touch after their move to Calgary, I have never forgotten about them, especially at Christmas time. I feel blessed to have known them and can still see their smiling faces. We wish to express our sincere condolences to you and your families. May Peace Be With You.

  8. I worked at Northlands in the Plant & Bldgs office during the same time that George worked in the Shop. The office would come to a halt when he came in ’cause there was always time to enjoy his stories and his wonderful sense of humour. Our sincere condolences to his family.
