Dear Linda, Just want you to know that Terry and I have been praying for you and yours all week long. We were close friends when we were young, and I am proud to know that I had something to do with you and Garry getting together. I am sorry that it has taken his death for us to reconnect. We are grateful for your life together and the man he was to you, his country and his profession. May God give you strength for the upcoming days, and peace there after. Even though I know you will be surrounded with many who will help you, do not hesitate to contact us for anything. Much love and many blessings, Margaret Anne Smith
