    Hi Wendy and Donna,

    Deb and I want to share our condolences. Mr. Ehlers was so kind and gentle (one of our favourites!) Thank you so much for donating his hearing aids. They will make a big difference in someone’s life. A big hug from us to you

    Thank you Donna for phoning us advising us of the loss of your dear Dad – it ‘softens’ the blow.
    We knew your Mom and Dad in the early 40’s when they both worked for David Spencer Ltd.We stayed in touch all these years even though in got down to Christmas cards. I still have some snapshots of you and Wendy playing with our children.
    Please accept our sincere sympathy – may it help in some small way to let you know we care.
    We look forward to seeing you in the summer.
    Kay and Brian

    Donna and Wendy, I wanted to pass along my condolences after hearing of the passing of your father. Lew was a lovely man and I know he and my Dad shared a good rapport over meals and activities at The Highlands and enjoyed their visits together while at Kelowna General. Gil passed on at Sutherland Hills Rest Home on January 13th so I picture the two of them above, free of pain and enjoying a good natter. My thoughts are with you. Brenda
