Dear Elaine. My thoughts have been with you for weeks. I have made many attempts to reach out to you and your family with no success. Although you will miss Ron I hope being able to Rest and strengthen yourself will give you time for yourself and some joy. It isn't easy caring for your loved ones. I admire your strength through this time. It seems like yesterday I stood up at your wedding. Soon your family was there and then they were grown and now we will be soon saying goodbye to our loved ones. I love the years we wrote letters to each other and the visits we had through our life. I was happy to see you both last summer. I hope you will stay in touch. All the best to you. Love Peace and Blessings. Loretta

Condolences to Ron's family. I have a fond memory of Ron and myself, up in Ladder 1's aerial basket at a fire on Main Street in Winnipeg. He had a chuckle when I commented on how lovely the full moon was as we sprayed water on the building for 2 hours.

This is indeed sad news. My most sincere condolences Elaine, to you and your family. Loved popping over to visit from the Smiths. Knowing what it's like to lose a most-treasured partner, I wish you many happy memories of your life together. Perhaps he will bump into Christine and share stories of the years you were neighbours. We will forever miss our beloved co-pilots. Ron Siewert
