  4. To my dear Aunt Ruth and Wayne, Judy, Nancy, Dale and your families my deepest sympathy on the loss of your very special loving husband and father and grandfather. Uncle Frank was one of a kind . I will always remember the families trips and special occasions with our cousins. I enjoyed hearing about his ski-doing adventures, hunting and fishing stories. His younger companions sometimes just couldn’t keep up with Uncle Frank. He always helped my Dad on the farm and they were such good friends and brother in laws even if there was a 28 yr. difference . I will miss talking to hm on the phone. I am so glad we had a special visit at Fairmont this September. With loving remembrance Linda Wilkie (niece)

  5. To Ruth and Family, Our thoughts are with you all during this very sad time. We will certainly miss Frank and the many hours spent in the alley discussing the neighbourhood, exchanging gardening tips and sharing many laughs as yet another growing season required daily attention. Frank was a special neighbour and we will miss him.
    Brian, Darlene, Pamela and Jeff
