    Dear Hal, Lyn and Family
    We send our sympathy to you as you mourn Helen’s passing.
    We have a daily reminder of both your parents because they left their two cacti – the Christmas and Easter – with us when they moved to Calgary as they did not have room for them there. During these present weeks, the Easter Cactus has been blooming with its beautiful big blooms.
    We enjoyed knowing and working with both of your parents at Newtonbrook UC.
    Sincerely
    Rodger and Alice Thompson
