    Aki, Mel, Gord, Laurie, Doug and Family;

    It has been many years since I lived in Foremost. I remember “Chick’s” smile and warm friendly greeting when I came downtown to the meat department store in Foremost, often with my mom–Helmi.

    My sincerest and deepest sympathy on your loss. Chick was a one of a kind human spirit and soul, whom I am sure is watching on and smiling from a place of eternity.
