  8. Hello Lewis, Sandy and family,

    I was saddened to hear of Dixie’s passing. We haven’t been in touch for years, but I remember her warmth and laughter. I also recall our days of card playing with Shirley and Roy. Many happy times in our early days. I also recall Dixie’s kindness and help when Nick died.
    Do take care and keep well.

    Irene, Alan, Warren and Gerald Tyshkewich
