    To the family of Lois and Gerry,

    My condolences to all of you on the demise of Lois. Years ago, Lois and I decided to pass away on the golf course, but that isn’t meant to be. Too bad but that might be hard to take for the rest of the foursome. I have happy memories of her and my deceased husband Gordon always liked Gerry.

    Best wishes to you all! Sincerely, Pat

    Ann and Gerry, I am sorry to read of the passing of your mother, Ann. Reading her obituary brought back memories of both you and Gerry, it has been so long since we have seen you! I hope we can get together again in Calgary under better circumstances. Your ears were likely burning as Pat Otto, Jim Thorne, Arlie and I got together to reminisce recently. Sam B was away that night but we called Brian Cameron long distance and harassed him. Clearly we need your #! I hope memories of your mom comfort you. Thinking of you both with fondness. Cathy
