    Dear Uncle Mike, Mel, David, Daryl (Alice) and Diana (Carey) and grandsons,
    I was very sad to hear that your beloved wife, mother and grandmother recently passed away. Aunty Mary had always been very kind and hospitable when I visited with my grandparents in my younger years. It must be extremely difficult for Uncle Mike to say goodbye to his best and closest friend for 69 years. For her children, it must be so sorrowful to say farewell to someone who gave them life. Your family is to be commended for the care and concern of dear parents over the past few years. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love from Arlene (Eugene) Wolkowycki (Kereluik). Edmonton
