I was so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I have so many great memories of the years we worked together out at Exhibition Park. Lots of stories were shared along with lots of laughs. Corinne and I were planning to call him to get together for lunch in the new year but unfortunately we missed our opportunity. On the other hand our last lunch, which lasted several hours, was a great visit as we remembered all the crazy things that happened over the years. Please accept my sincere condolences Lorea and to your family. I would definitely be at the service but unfortunately I'm out of the country travelling for a few weeks. All my best to all of you. Betty Johnston (former City of Abbotsford, Manager of Recreation Services)
