I am saddened to hear of the loss of Uncle Alvin.. I have very fond memories of all my Grandpa's brothers and sisters. My favorite of Uncle Alvin was the last time he was here in Regina we talked for along time about his brother my Grandpa Ernie, he was so comforting to talk to and a smile that seem to light up a room. I am very grateful for the book of psalms he gave to us.

Diane, Glen and family: We were blessed to have Al as our brother-in-law; he was the kindest, most loving and a gentle but fun loving man and we will always have so many wonderful memories of him. He was so much a part of the family and we miss him already but we know where he has gone and will be following his path so will see him again in the not too distant future.

Al, I know you are in heaven smiling down on us. Each person that came in contact with you were truly blessed to have known you. You were full of life and such a wonderful person. You welcomed everyone with open arms. We are sad to have lost you on earth, but heaven has gotten a new angel.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ward family. God Bless you and surround you all with his love and strength.

Sending our deepest condolence to the Ward family. I have very fond memories of Alvin at gatherings at Aunt Julie and Uncle Pats home and recently his trips to Saskatchewan. His face lit up when he spoke of his grandchildren. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.
