    Dear Glen and Uklan,

    We were sad to hear of your father’s passing. No expression of sympathy – no matter how deeply felt – can help much right now, but we had to let you know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.


    Bill and Deanna

    As a young boy, I would often hear Edward practicing on the bagpipes in the Watson garage.I guess it
    has had a lasting effect as I have been attending the annual Robbie Burns night dinners in Edmonton
    for many years now. My sincere sympathies to his brother and sisters and to his family whom I never knew.
