    I would like to send my condolences to Hakons family as well. Cindy and Sharon knew Hakon as there step father for over 25 years, and he phoned them on Saturday night to wish them both a Happy Thanksgiving. Loosing a father is horrible, especially when he had fantastic stories and advise. He will be missed dearly.

  6. My thoughts go out to all those who loved and cherished Hakon for his strength and reverence for life. He had a long beautiful life, much of it spent where I now live in Balfour. He loved to fish on Kootenay Lake with my mother Erna. I feel close to both their spirits here.
