  17. Hi there, I am a long lost friend of Jeff’s from Nova Scotia. We worked together in Kananaskis and he meant a great deal to me. While trying to locate him online I came across this obituary. I am so sorry for your loss, I know how late this is coming to you, but I send my sympathy just as much as if it were yesterday.
