    Dear family of Berdeen;
    Her happy picture makes me smile and remember all the wonderful times we had at 950 Lanfranco and all the fun we had on our walks every morning.
    Her faith in the Lord was an inspiration to us and we loved her.
    Our love and sympathy to your wonderful family, of whom she was so proud.
    God Bless you from Beryl Baldeo and the Lanfranco Walkers.

    Dear Dave and Connie and Link Family. So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing, Connie. I remember her well, always so friendly, interested in whatever we were doing. It is only recently when we Laing’s were all together for Mom’s birthday that we were talking about your Mom and Dad and how much we always enjoyed them. Lots of love. Marj. Hope this finds all of you well too.

    To the Link Family:
    We have such fond memories of your Mom and Dad – lots of fun and laughs. We had coffee with Berdeen in Kelowna about nine years ago and had a good visit. We lost track of each other the last few years.
    Hope all is well with each of you.
    Please accept our sympathy.
    God Bless.
    Lorraine and Dick McKinnon

    Dear Connie and Dave,
    We have just learned of the passing of Berdeen and Pam and I wanted to express our sympathies to both of you and to the family.
    When we lose someone it does cause us to look back on the relationship we had with them and the stories start to flow. I always enjoyed your parents, Connie, and always felt very welcomed in their home. Your Dad was one of the few “successful businessmen” I knew and, knowing of his strong faith, the fact that he could at the same time be a”successful businessman” was an encouragement to me to remain faithful. I am grateful for all of that!

    To all the Link family, and especially Connie and Dave : Jerry and I want to send our deepest sympathies to all of you in the loss of your MOM and Grandma and Great Grandma.We always saw Berdeen smiling. Always!Elmer let us use his lovely ’66 Mercury for our wedding car. Not only was it turquoise, the colour I was crazy about, but its back window rolled down so we could get a picture of the bride and groom through that window ! Wow! We felt very rich ! So generous they both were to us. They took care of our 2 year old son, Ian, in the balcony of Bethel Baptist church, so that we could both sing in the choir every Sunday. He led the choir from that post ! We have so many good memories of Berdeen. Even cleaned and fried Ian’s first fish he caught @ Canyon Hot Springs campground. She was so good with kids because she loved them so much. We will miss her too as will you all. lovingly, Jerry and Heather Popoff(Dave’s sister).

    To the Link Family
    Your parents modelled so many positive Christian family values to us when we were new inexperienced parents. Brenda you sometimes babysat our children. We had so many fun evenings with your parents often after choir practice. When they moved from Calgary we didn’t communicate much, but we have so many wonderful memories of both your father and mother.
    God be with each of you as you adjust to the loss of your precious mother.
    Lovingly in Christ,
    Don & Doris
