  1. George and family,
    My condolences in the passing of your dad. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Dementia is a tough gig for both the person and the family. It has been a very long time since our days in Salmon Arm–would love to connect again. Take care.

  2. Message from Ruth Enns…..

    We all remember “Gus” & his side-kick, Alf Sleigh. Not only did Henry go to
    KITS, but he was also in the Seaforths, and an avid skier. If I recall
    correctly, he moved to
    Salmon Arm in 1962 to avoid the atom bomb! Well, we all escaped that, Gus, thanks goodness ! R.I.P. Good Buddy, from your Classmates of ’46.
