    Betty, Dwight and Family: I am truly saddened to hear of your loss. I hold fond memories of Lynn at the family (Arthur) reunions, at church in Athelstan, any at pretty much anytime we would meet: recall his warm smile-the solid handshakes that went with them (which I am pleased that Dwight has inherited :) ). I recall during my school days, the genuine interest he would express in what I was doing as a youth with the Scouts or camping, or later on as an adult in the RCAF. Helen and my sincerest condolences. - Hugs, Freddie
