    We came to know Mow and his family when we moved to Calgary in 1973. In those days, we remember having so much fun with visits and parties and Mow was always the centre of the festivities.
    We cannot remember every seeing Mow without a smile, and he loved having friends around him, when the stories he told would bring much laughter.
    He will be missed.
    We send our condolences to Lelia and all the family.
