    I am so sorry for the loss of Carey. I met him many years ago when he was with Xerox in Medicine Hat. He was such a wonderful help as he trained my technologically retarded brain to operate these fancy machines. He had such patience. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    I worked at Kodiak Print for many years, and had the wonderful opportunity to work and get to know Carey very well. I cannot express to you what an incredible loss this is, and how much he will be missed. My heart goes out to you Shelley and the girls in the loss of a wonderful husband and father. Anyone who knew him as well as I did will suffer the loss of a wonderful friend. My thoughts and many prayers are with you. I am so sorry that I did not respond sooner but just heard about it. We will remember the great person he was and will always be.
