  11. Dear Loraine,Kathy,Rodger and families. I am so sorry for your loss. Bill was such a wonderful brother-in-law. I have so many fond memories of all the times Alan and I spent with all of you! Bill and Alan were so much alike with that same twinkle in their eye and a cunning sense of humour. I will always remember the Stampede cowboy antics Bill and I got up to and the blue heron ,pelican joke we had going for so many years ! We had lots of fun times we spent together. He was always such a good host and good sport when Debbie and I came out for visits driving us all over Calgary to see the sights. He was a very kind and thoughtful man. My heart is with you all and I will truly miss him very much. He’s gone to join his brothers. Love to all of you! Anne
