    How I will miss Vi’s bright spirit! It was such a joy to look after her on dialysis and then to have her as a very special friend in the last couple of years. She always mentioned you, her family, to me and was so proud of you all. Just think, now she is dancing on two legs!

    What a wonderful world of friends that came from that old Esso Resources crowd; Firmstons, Hammonds, my folks and yours. Your dad taught me how to tie the cinch of a saddle; I still have horses. Your mom was always so nice to me when I was younger. I know that dad and your mom stayed in touch over the years. Such wonderful memories.
