    Dear Pat, Kathy, Kevin, Barb, and families
    We were so sad to hear of your mom's passing. She was truly a great and gracious lady, and we were blessed to have known her and you folks. I have many warm and wonderful memories of great visits and working together at the church in so many different ways over the years. In some ways it seems like ages ago.
    Although we are now living in Ontario, our memories of happy times in Kelowna, especially with you folks are still very much alive.
    May God bless you and especially be with you in this year of firsts.
    Cyril and Rose

    Our thoughts are with the Powell and Piddocke families during this difficult time. Our family ties with the Piddocke family go back to when Len and Mary sponsored our parents when they immigrated to Canada back in 1953. Those ties remain still to this day.

    Morris, Joan, Margaret, Mary Ellen, and families....sincere condolences to you all. My favourite memories of Pennie are, her babysitting me and my siblings when we were very little, her singing and playing the piano, and watching her come out of the church on her and Denny's wedding day.
    Sincerely,
