  2. Larry and Doreen Dionne :

    We are very sad to hear of the passing of Joe. It is a blessing that Joe is now away from his awful pain. Our thoughts and hearts are with you Darlene, and your son Ryan and daughter Shelley and their families. I am happy that I was able to drop in on a surprise visit about 2 years ago. It was nice to see you and was happy to meet you Ryan. I hope that Doreen and I can get to meet you and Shelley and your families soon. I had stayed with Darleen and Joe for 3 weeks in about 1964 when training for Sales Rep for Pella Windows in Calgary. It was real nice to get to know Joe. Darlene and I, Larry, are cousins, and we grew up together on neighbouring farms in the Neptune, SK area. Love, Larry and Doreen Dionne, Langley, BC

  4. Len and Deborah Babin :

    Though we knew Joe but a few short years, we felt as close as family. Shared hours of gardening and chats in the yard were a happy part of our time together.

    Though we have moved away, we will always feel a kinship with Darlene and will always be there for her.

    We feel a profound sadness at the departure of Joe but we understand that he had valiantly struggled for many years with his illness. His is a huge loss for Calgary and Canada.

    Len and Deb
