    Harvey it was a privilege to have worked with you. It was an honour to share stories about wildlife, and your knowledge of birds was unsurpassed. Whenever I reminice about FLOE LAKE IN KOOTENAY NATIONAL PARK I will remember the day we hiked there and the pleasure of your company. May God grant you eternal peace and joy. My condolences to your family….Perry Chiappini
