Uncle Steve and Auntie Sue decided to end their tour of Southern Albania early, cancel their Cypress plans and return to Vancouver as soon as possible. Mom wanted to go with them. On Tuesday morning, Steve, Sue and Mom were on the Lufthansa flight back to Vancouver.
Grandpa will surely be missed by all that knew him. I have so many wonderful memories of the time we spent together on Salt Spring Island growing up and later in Burnaby. He taught my brothers and I some valuable lessons like working hard on your studies, standing up when a lady enters the room, and keeping good posture (chin up and shoulders back)! I also admired the love he had for his wife of 63 years, Mildred, who passed away in 2005. I don’t think a day went by that he didn’t think of her.
We are going to miss you Grandpa!
