    To the family of Bill:
    I only met you last year at Bill’s 80th birthday in Moose Jaw, but I was so happy to connect with him and renew memories of old times later at Jeannette and Len’s home, listening to him talk about my parents and our grandma (Aunt Jean’s mom and her sister was my mom) and the very brief time of our childhood when he lived at St Anthony’s place in MJ when we would visit then there. They were happy times … he had said then that he always asked about the relatives of his sisters and brother over the years so knew about us all. He particularly recalled stories about my brother Jerry.
    My sympathy to you all … may you find comfort and peace in your memories. Thinking of you, Merle Harrison

    Dear Bill and Mollys family
    We have only recently learned of your Dads passing, and we send our deepest sympathy. Although we haven’t seen your family in recent years, we always enjoyed our short visits. Your Mom and Dad were very special to us, and we think of them often. I know the memories of times spent together will last for a lifetime. Sending our love to all of you.
