    To the Taniguchi family I would like to express my sincere condolences on behalf of my family I can remember selling Sam a Datsun car in the 70’s Sorry for your loss

    Hello Betty/Tim,

    So sad to hear about Sam.

    I always enjoyed our talks in Heritage Close and he would tell me about his days land levelling in the Brooks/Hays irrigated areas of southern Alberta. I admired his dedication to walking regularly and always having a cheerful word. He always offered me a Pepsi after we worked together on the front yard after Peter built your home.

    All the Best Betty,

    Your neighbours from the end of the Close
    Dennis and Sylvia Matis

  3. Rodney Jones says:

    Dear Betty and Tim,
    Most certainly not forgotten. Memories of our time in Brooks and working with Sam are as warm as ever. His calm wisdom prevails.
    Sorry I couldn’t make it to his service.
    Go well, Rodney
