To Bob, Joy, Gary, Marilyn & families: So sorry to hear of your father’s death. He was a wonderful friend to me and my parents ( Jim & Tillie McKenzie) and the rest of our family. I wondered when I did not get a Xmas card for the first time in over fifty years and was intending to phone today. Wish I could be with you on Thursday but too far to drive. We will miss Lindsay very, very much. Much love to you all.

Our sincerest sympathy to you all and your family. I remember the many vacations to Osoyoos when I was a child, visiting Mr. & Mrs Watson, Gary and Marilyn. He was a wonderful long time friend to my late father Glen, and I’m sure they have connected again in heaven and are swapping old stories.
