    A very kind, gentle citizen of our community has passed on; Canada was fortunate to have such a fine man and woman come to call this land their home. We frequented their bakery in Braeside often, enjoying their bread and rolls immensely.
    We know that in retirement they found another way to reap what they sowed. Nel, you have many adjustments to make without your partner of many years, yet you have children and grand children who no doubt will help you through your as well as their loss.

    Hello Nell & family,

    It is sure sad to learn of Art’s passing.
    After our immigrant family came to join your family in Bellevue, in 1958, an instant bond was formed, which continues to last. Together we became like an extended family. We did some very memorable things during that short Bellevue time, which I’m sure we all still remember.

    Art was part of that special time also. I can always remember his smiling face, as I met him while walking into the Bellevue Bakery, or while going to church together.

    We know that he is now with the Lord. Surely in a better place, than during the last little while on this earth.

    Our hearts go out to you Nell, during your time of sorrow, even though we surely know that you will be able to draw comfort and strength from our Lord, and from your immediate family and children.

    Our heartfelt condolences,

    Mel & Shirley Ras ( Vancouver, BC )

    Dear Nel and family: Condolences to you all. May the Lord surround you with his loving care and comfort. It was always a special time we had at Sky Valley when you came but also we were reminded that his health was slowly deteriorating following that open wound on his leg. Yet we remember well his gentle smile and kind nature. We wish you strength as you go forward alone Nel.
