    Our sincere sympathy goes out to you, Bena, and to your family. We were so sorry to hear about Himat. We were regular customers at Anpurna, and always enjoyed our chats with Himat – he had a good sense of humour, and we had lots of laughs with him. We are thinking about you and your family, and pray that you will find peace and comfort at this very difficult time.

    Bena: My deepest sympathies are sent to you and your family. It is hard to believe that almost 30 years have passed since I last saw both of you. I remember when you first arrived in Lethbridge and introduced a way of life and faith that carried you both for so many years. Jackie Manning just shared with me the passing of your soul mate, because that in fact is what both of you were/are. I pray that your faith holds you through the moments when you are alone and that you celebrate the family and life you both created. In deepest sympathy Val.
