    Ruth & Ted Wiens have had a very positive impact on my life. They introduced me to the music and volunteer scene in Calgary. Peter & Pals, my band, would never have taken roots without them. And hence the joy and hope we’ve given to thousands over the past 20 years would never have happened. Ruth has always been a very positive and loving individual to the Calgary community and will be duly missed.

    My wife, Myrna, and I send our sincerest condolences to Ted and his family.
