    Joan & Family, Katrina & I would like to extend our condolences to you regarding the passing of Ellis. He is one of the true gentlemen that I have met in my lifetime. I will always remember our golf outings, especially that one mountain climbing par 4 at Ellis home course, Shannon Lakes. That hole was such a steep climb up I recall asking Ellis if we would be greeted by Sherpa guides half way up. I am honoured to have met Ellis and I have always cherished the kindness that Ellis & Joan have directed my way. We will be thinking of you all on Friday. Gordon & Katrina
