    Dear Heather and Lauren, we are very sorry to read of your Grandpa's passing. We met you at Kelowna General Hospital in September. Your grandpa and my one legged Dad shared a room on the stroke ward. Dad was in a wheelchair, recovering from a stroke and we shared some lovely moments with your Granddad. He was feisty and made us all laugh. When the nurses would ask him what day it was, he said, "Who cares?" and one time he and my Dad were trying to cheat and figure out the day and the date before the nurse came in and when she finally came and asked them, they both got it wrong anyway. Our hearts are with you as you celebrate this special man's life,
    Norm and Karen Thompson and Karen's Dad, Arnold Newman
