    I miss the opportunity to connect with Bryan. But his book had been a bleesing to us. I hope to connect with the family members, that we would like to translate and publish his book into Chinese, let Bryan be a blessing to other people. He is gone but continue speaking.

    I am so sorry to discover the passing of Pastor Norford. He was our pastor for many years at Boundary Road where my mum Verda played the piano. My mum passed away in April 2016 and is also laid to rest in Mountain View Cemetery. He was a wonderful caring, intelligent pastor and we enjoyed our friendship with him and his beautiful wife Anne. My sincerest condolences to all of the family.
