    On behalf of the “Alhambra” Dickson and Pollitt families, our sincere condolences. I enjoyed the phone calls with Doug and am so happy that I made it down to see him in the fall-great day-stories, pictures and lunch. I am sorry that no one from our family can be there on Friday-my husband just had a procedure at Cancer Clinic yesterday and not feeling very well. My brother Bruce(who Doug and Jim had visited) is in hospital and my cousin Bob&Sharon Pollitt also can’t come because of a medical appointment on Friday, however, they asked me to extend their sympathy to you as well.

Send Condolences
