Martin, Rox, Alison and myself would like to send our condolences to Kuen and family and Lai-Wan. I was happy to have had the opportunity to FaceTime with Kwong in mid May and we discussed the happy time he, Pat, Jill, Joanne, Shirley, Molly, Shirley, Peter, Dee, Deb, Tiffany and ourselves had in Aruba. RIP Kwong, you and Pat are together again.

I know Uncle Kwong and Aunt Pat are together again in Heaven. I enjoyed my two visits with my family with them and their family to Calgary in the 1990s, including surprising Uncle Kwong and Aunt Pat for their anniversary in 1992. God Bless

Uncle Kwong will be greatly missed. I will always remember him for his infectious laughter and thoughtful insights. I also remember coming to Canada from Trinidad and having him and Auntie Pat here for us.

We'll miss KC's smiling face and gentle humour at our community seniors' activities. He was always a joy to be around.

When our family immigrated to Canada in 1971 Uncle Kwong and Auntie Pat were very supportive in helping us settle into our new lives. We often recall their kindness and generosity.

Uncle Kwong got me my first job all those years ago at Pay n Save. Now that I am retired I know that he made a huge contribution to my working life.

He will be remembered as a gentle and caring soul.

Condolences to Lai-Wan and Kuen and family.

Mr. Chow never ceased to amaze me with his enthusiasm and humor. He was always so kind and gentle with people. His soft spoken nature surprised me with his heartfelt laughter. I was reminded of our ski trip when I visited him in the hospital. He told me how scary a driver I was. I couldn't believe all the details he remembered about our ski trip more than 20 years ago. This was how much he cared about me. I told Kuen we just lost one of the greatest man we know. No one can ever come close to his impact in our loves. He is greatly missed by all of us but I know we will meet again one day.

K.C. I consider it a privilege to have had this wonderful man cross paths with me in life. My " Fellow disciple of Galen" was an endless source of enjoyment in my life for which I am grateful. He provided a friendly ear and good advice while we were both in the practice of pharmacy. After his retirement he was a frequent visitor to the store and entertained us with anecdotes of his current adventures ranging from travel,to tennis, biking, playing harmonica with his band to discussing chord changes on the guitar and as ever the pharmacy world. My heart felt condolences to his family who will surely be missing his humor, intelligence, compassion and big heart.
Goodbye KC from all of the old Blue Bottlers

Although separated by the Pacific Ocean, and communicating over the years mainly through cyberspace, we remember Kwong as a thoughtful jovial person with a continuing enthusiasm for knowledge and a wide range of interests beyond his professional occupation as a pharmacist. He loved gardening, took up carpentry, learned wood carving, engaged in painting, played the mouth organ in entertaining performances with a group of musical friends. We shall miss him, but he lives on in our memories. Colin and Anne Ying
