I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Pawluk's passing. I enjoyed having chats with him whenever I visited him. We had a connection in that I have been to the small town of Poplarfield where he had spent part of his childhood. I enjoyed listening to his memories. He was a dear and gentle man and I will miss our visits. My condolences to Mrs. Pawluk, Donna, Dave and my brother Don (Donna's husband).

Love Vicki

Dear Helen, Donna and David - I’m so sorry for the loss of your dear Husband and Father. Helen, what a beautiful photo of John, and this is the way I remember him best when you, John and I met for dinner a number of years ago in Toronto when I was there for work. Time can never erase lovely memories of those we love, and I trust you have many to sustain you. You are thought of with much love, and often. Your Cousin Linda ♥️
