  1. My husband and I were good friends with Art and Margaret for almost 20 years. I will always be so grateful to Art for his kindness and patience in dealing with my husband Dave. They were good friends and when my husband was failing, Art was there to always bring him home and be kind and patient. I will miss seeing you at the mail box with your furry friends….RIP Art….and thank you

  2. Dear Susan,Terry,Tony, Margaret and family

    We are deeply saddened to hear of your Dad’s (Art) passing. Many years have pasted since I came to your house after school. I will always remember your Dad as a kind, gentle man with a genuine smile.

    Sincere condolence,


  3. Susan, Tony and Terry, so sorry to hear the sad news of the passing of your father and may he rest in peace.

  4. Oh Mr. Dennis!
    Your Como Lake back yard, your garage and your back alley was always so neat and tidy.. sorry for almost burning down the fence….. You were very kind to not string us up by our ankles for that and a million other zany teenage girl escapades that happened at your house!! I remember your grin, your kindness and your warm, easy going manner. I also knew how much you loved your kids and how very proud you were of them everytime you attended a competition or (yet another) skating carnival. You were truly one of the good ones.. may you rest in peace.

  5. Dear Margaret,
    We were all so sad to hear of Arts passing. Our sincere condolences to you and your family. Art had such a gentle, caring nature. We will surely miss his Blind Bay updates each summer, his visits and helpful nature. Sending love and prayers from the entire Langdon family.

    Love Mimi

  7. Our condolences on the loss of Art to you Margaret and the whole family especially Susan, Ian, Jason and Jesse.
    We had such great hospitality from both of you when we stopped by for a visit at the beginning of our cross-Canada driving trip many years ago. The swarming hummingbirds were a hi-light!
    Hugs from Randy and Cheryl Taylor and family

  8. Margaret my condolences on your loss. I haven’t seen Arty in years. But he was my brother in law at one time. Always had kind thoughts and good memories of him.

  9. Such a sad loss of a good friend. Art was always so kind and helpful to me which was truly appreciated. He loved the Shuswap and being outdoors. I will always remember him walking to the mailbox with his four legged kids. Sending love and prayers to you Margaret, see you soon.
    Your friend

  10. Dear Margaret and Family,

    We are so deeply saddened to learn of Art’s passing.
    We always looked forward to seeing Art (and the dogs) on our morning walks, meeting at the mailboxes, and catching up on local news. He always had a kind word and very often a nice treat for Halle.
    Art will be greatly missed in the neighbourhood.
    With sincere sympathy and love, Barry & Linda

  11. Hi Margaret,
