Dear Mike and Family,

It is with shock and deep sadness that I read of Kathleen’s passing, all the more so given her young age. I recall fondly you talking with joy in your voice of wilderness canoe trips into Algonquin Park with Kathleen and a very young family. Cherish those wonderful memories and the many more that you have. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I will see you on Saturday.

Your friend,

Randy Alward
