Dad, You made me proud when I was young, ethics and insight on a higher plain. I feel your song is still being sung - being my father was my lucky gain.
You will walk beside me the rest of my life. Your humor and kindness with me all of my days. Good and bad and even in strife, I know you will help me find the way.
Love Gary

Condolences on Brian's passing. I have many fond memories of him from the former Calgary Professional Speaker Association, now known as CAPS. Brilliant, funny, very enjoyable. Bruce Lee

Rita and family. Sorry to read about Brian's passing. He still looked the same, full of mischief, as he did when we lived in Lake Christina Close so long ago. With sympathy, Gordon (Joe) and Karen Hogg
