Dear Battrums,
Thank you for the very sad notice, which I received with the deepest sorrow. I last spoke to Lew on his Birthday--and he sounded his usual good self--and we talked about travels, our common hobby.
so sad!

Dear Alexandra and family:
How sorry I was to learn of your Grandfather's quiet death. "In life, in death, in life after death, God is with us." You will have fond memories of him. You will feel his influence, his spirit at the unexpected times in your daily living--that will be a comfort as the years go by.
All love & sympathy,

Deepest Sympathy- May your precious memories bring you comfort at this sad time. To Denis, Debbie, Elaine, Kathy and your families: I was sorry to hear about the loss of your father. When I think of him & your mother, I remember how kind and generous they were to me, and how much fun my mom & dad had when you and your family came to visit us at the cabin in Kaleden or we visited you in Vancouver. Such a well lived life. Take care & thanks for letting me know. Eleanor

From all of us to all of you our deepest condolences. We only met Lew a few times but I will always recall the sparkle in his eyes. I have the loveliest picture of him with Alexandra enjoying the Canadian open and most of all his granddaughter. A true gentleman. Our thoughts are with you all. Love Paula, Wes, Nicole and Erin.

Denis, Deborah, Elaine and Kathryn,
Your dad always held my respect - he was so tall! And your mom was always so elegant. Memories from more than 40 years ago. If my dad were alive today he would have been so sad for the loss of such a good friend, fellow manager and great human. I was always so impressed by how good each of you became at any task you took up be it ham radio operator, pianist or , later, as a professional at your work. Will follow up with a letter at a later date.
Wishing you all the best, peace and fond memories.

Dear Elaine and family,

We received your card and we appreciate you making the effort at this very sorrowful time. You are following in your Father's compassionate footsteps, as he was as thoughtful when your Mother passed. We know how important family was to him.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Fran and family
