    Our deepest condolences to Merete, Helle & Louise and families. Flemming was one of a kind. His humour, the way he could remember and tell jokes, made him the life of any party and is something we will always remember. He was a gentlemen, and we always felt included in his surroundings, whether at the Danish Canadian Club or at the Barbershop. I always left the barbershop smiling and with a new joke to remember. Fleming always spoke highly of his family, and always wished to do more. Between being a hairstylist in Denmark and finishing off in Canada, we often wondered ‘ how many hair cuts might Flemming have done in his lifetime’ . We have truly admired him over the years, and it saddens us, that we will greatly miss him. We are sure that the memories the you all have in your hearts, will comfort you in the days to come.
    Skal Flemming – Hans & Brenda Abild

    Dear Anne and family,
    I was very saddened to read in the Herald that Flemming has passed away. He (and you!) were wonderful clients for many years, and always a pleasure to assist. Flemming was always in good humour, even when he had a problem to resolve. I am retired now, and in California at the moment, so I am sorry I will be unable to attend the service. However, my thoughts will be with you. Sincerest condolences, Susan Burns

    Dear Anne, Helle and Family:
    It is with great sadness that we have learnt about the passing of a great man, Flemming. He always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye whenever we crossed paths. He was full of fun and always had a lift in his step, a positive outlook. The salon was a magical place, turning our hairstyles into feel good. We only knew him professionally, but it appears that he cherished Anne and Helle very much
    May the significance of his life not be deterred by the passage of time.

  15. My sincere condolences to Anne and her family on their loss. I always enjoyed Flemming because of his humour and bon vivant attitude to life. He will be sorely missed. I would have liked to have attended the functions today but I just got out of hospital after a little cancer surgery. I do hope I hear from you and perhaps have lunch at the DCC.

  16. Little did I know, when I arranged a photo shoot for The Herald almost 40 years ago, that I would acquire a hairdresser for all the decades to come. One with with magic hands. And terrible jokes. I`ll miss Flemming so much. All my sympathy to Anne and Helle and the rest of his family.
