  1. Jackie Britz (nee Williams)

    Dear Collin ,Faye and Joan,

    I was very sorry to hear about your Dad. Thanks to my Aunt Judy in Calgary who sent the obituary in the Calgary Herald. I remember him as a tall, quiet and kind man. The last time we was saw your Dad and Mom was (I believe) the fall of 2000 when Dad, Joel and I took the train west after Mom died. We then rented a car and drove to Calgary from Edmonton and tried to find the farm in Caroline. After talking to your Dad I think we missed it by only a turn! I have such fond memories of that place.

    Sending you our heartfelt sympathy, Dad (Uncle Eric – 99 on the 26th of this month) and my sister Laurie.

    Take Care,

  3. To the Williams family,

    Sorry to read your dad had passed away. It appears his life was full. I don’t think there are any of the old 48Av folks still with us now. I’m sorry for your loss.
