    Dear Wayne and family,
    Words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel hearing of the passing of your mother, Ethel. Please accept my condolences. She and your Dad were wonderful friends and support for Joey in Sundre and brought many smiles and laughter to our family. I have wonderful memories of her and my mother and our shopping experiences in Red Deer. She was my mother’s friend for 70+ years and for that, I will always appreciate her and her wit, kindness, and friendship.
