CARD OF THANKS~With the year coming to a close, I would like to thank the many friends and groups who have give me support since Linda's sudden passing.

My thanks go out to the many people who have made donations to Anderson Park Development, the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children and the United Church. A number of people have asked as to my intentions with Linda's ashes. At her request, the inurnment will be at a private family service in June of 2012 at Drumheller Cemetery Columbarium, near her Parents, Grandparents and Aunt and Uncles. The ladies of the Home Care service also deserve a special thank you for they have been taking care of my medical needs since Linda's death.
