    You will not remember me or even know me but my family lived next door in Lethbridge in the mid 1950’s and I was best friends with Elaine who I am sad to see has passed away. I also remember her brother Geordie. I have fond memories of your family and often would go to a church activity with Elaine. My sincere condolences.
