    Mae and family, Lyle and I spent many hours at the Elks club, shooting pool and a little bull around the table. Beers and cheers were greatly enjoyed with Lyle and the rest of the ''pool sharks'' in the good days when we lived in Kelowna.
    Lyle was a kind man and a great person to call a friend.
    With sincere condolences.

    Dear Mrs. Sabey, Sherri, Don, Jackie & family, when I was told of Mr. Sabey's passing, it took me back in time many decades. To our youth Don, when Kim & I spent quite a bit of time at your parents home on Gore St. I remember how welcoming and friendly they were, and how much I enjoyed our time spent with them. I am truly sorry for your loss of such a lovely man.
    Warm regards,
    Barbara Roberts (Tucker)

    Dear Mrs. Saby, Jackie and Don,
    My condolences to your family. I remember Mr. Saby when we all lived on Gore St. He was a kind and friendly man. I have many memories of Jackie and I running back and forth from our houses. Hanging at your house was fun and Mr. Saby always made me feel welcome. I am sorry for your loss. May your memories comfort you.

    My grandfather was an amazing man with a life that was full and rich and long. What more can we ask of life, but to fill our cup with family and friends - laughter and friendship... I believe he did all those things and more. I believe there's more to his life than I will ever truly know or realize; the full extent of people that he touched with his personality and his love. He was an amazing grandfather to grow up with and showed me the power and strength of community and friendship and honour... and even though he was always pranking us we always felt safe and warm and trusted him no matter how many times he would tease us or pull a joke ... I miss that fun. Since he's passed, we've shared many stories and I've gotten to hear about sides of him that I never truly knew at all. About his efforts during the War and what he did as a machinist and how he met my grandmother and the love story that followed after that, to the to the times that he was raising my mom and her siblings and what he must've been like. He spent a lot of time with friends and neighbours building friendships to walk together down the long road of life with. I've known him for the fall and winter of his life, but wouldn't I love to know the stories that came from the spring and the summer of his long and storied life! I've just never experienced anyone so gentle and kind. I've truly learned so many values from him... I feel a hole that can't ever be filled but I feel also all of the values and all of the things he taught me rippling through the pond of my life and carrying on into his great-grandchildren and eventually his great-great grandchildren! Thank you to all who enriched his life with your Love, who have amazing memories of him and who have stories to share- we will celebrate his life in the spring and you will all be there to share in remembering his glorious soul!

    Dear Mae, Sherrie, Don, Jackie and the whole family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. Lyle was such an awesome man, and I will never forget our over the fence conversations. Thank you so much Sherrie for bringing Mae and Lyle to visit Mom and I before Christmas. My Mom just said yesterday that she wanted to go visit you guys once the cold snap thats here warms up. You all were the best neighbours! I wished you would have never moved. Mae, you are such a strong and beautiful lady. I hope you find peace within all the love and special memories you and Lyle shared over the years. Ive asked my Dad to find Lyle and get some fishing rods and sit by a stream to chinwag about life like they used to do in the back alley. My love and prayers go out to all of you at this difficult time. We will visit you soon. You were so great to be there with us to celebrate the loss of my Dad.
    Hugs with love,
    Pam, Marilyn, Colleen & Mark Nikon (and the rest of our clan).
