  8. Dear Albert, Diane & Allen:
    My deepest sympathies to you on the sudden passing of your loving Wife & Mother. I was shocked & deeply saddened to receive your call last week of my long time, dearest friend now being in the loving arms of our Lord. I was so looking forward to our wonderful visits on my next trip to Calgary. We shared a wonderful bond of love & friendship over the past 30+ years.
    Ollie was such a remarkable, loving, kind & fun loving lady, admired & respected both professionally and privately by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her family came first in every decision she made. Ollie will be sadly missed. We will all cherish our own special memories of Ollie. Rest in Peace Dear Friend.
    You are in my thoughts & prayers God Bless.
    Judy
