There are no words to comfort but may all the memories that we all have of Dad keep the twinkle in our eyes and the smiles on our faces. What a beautiful opportunity and such pleasure to have known your Mom and Dad both over so many years.

    Hi Macleod and Jadde,

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your father. From reading the other condolence message it’s apparent he was well respected, much loved, and that he made a real difference during his time. And really what else could anyone wish for, especially in reaching a good old age of 92. Sophena and I send our thoughts and love your way.

  8. Sinclair Family,
    It was such a pleasure to know Ted, for so many years, 60+. He was a great man. We worked together on the board at Foothills United Church and Bow Centre in Bowness. Always a delight! I loved Ted and Jean very much. With sympathy, Anne McDonald.
