Relation: Celia was a co-worker in the past

It’s with sadness I just read in the Oliver Chronicle of Guy’s passing. I remember Guy from our ‘old days’ (over 25 years ago now) at Beaver Lodge… We would go out to work in the community, mowing lawns and raking leaves for customers… Guy was a consciencious worker. One day he coined “Strawberry Shortcake” as a nick-name for me and it stuck (I’m short, so others picked up the name too – I considered it a term of endearment.) Even now, whenever I see or hear the name ‘Strawberry Shortcake’ I think of Guy.
I used to try to practice my limited French with him and would call him Guy Tougas (pronouncing it in French) and he would talk (in English) about his home-town of St. Boniface, Manitoba. One thing I remember of his likes and dislikes: He prefered butter on his sandwiches and definitely disliked mayonnaise!
My main rememberance of him is that Guy had a quiet dignity about him which troubles and circumstances didn’t shake.
Please accept my condolences on your loss of a brother and friend.
Respectfully,
Celia (Fontinha) Thomas
