    Galvin and family:

    It is with great sadness that Linda and I just found out about the passing away of your father. It seems like just yesterday that your mom and dad moved to Kamloops and you, Dave and I drove the two vehicles to Kamloops for them. That was a great trip. Your dad and mom were great people and always welcomed me into their house. I shall not forget their kindness.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.

    Randy & Linda Shalagan
