  • I am sitting in Vancouver Airport awaiting my flight to Kelowna.

    I was deeply saddened to read about Susan. Jasco (the Pets & People Weimaraner) and I enjoyed visiting her.

    I had planned to take Jasco in to visit Susan tomorrow morning.

  • Dear Robbi and Lane (and family)

    I was most saddened to read your Mom’s obituary late last night (Dec 1st). On Remembrance Day, Mr. Wilson and I were just saying that we hoped we would see her since we hadn’t last year. We would meet up with each other and catch up on family news…. I would like both of you to know that I have fond memories of your Mom as a most supportive parent to both of you and to me as a teacher. You are one of those families I will not forget! I am sure she is missed by many>

    God bless.

  • Fred and family. We got to know Susan through Quigley School PAC when our kids went to school and continued to enjoy chats with Susan over the years when we would meet on our walks down Cactus Road. We hope that in time, your wonderful memories of her will be able to replace any sadness you may have today. Her smile and cheery way will surely be kept in our memories. Russ and Chris
