From: Leslie I ( Harper) Hawk

Dear Sandra, I recently returned from a trip to Victoria and attempted to look up Uncle Ken. I’m so sorry to find out he passed away just 6 months after the death of my brother Douglas. It has suddenly struck me that I am now the oldest living relative on this side of the George B Harper family. I’d like to at least know where the rest of my cousins are, and if you have their addresses ( email, facebook, or otherwise,) I’d love to know. Do have Stephen’s. My love to your family.

From: Anne (Welch) Wilde
Relation: Like a brother.

Sandra, I am so sorry to just have heard about you Dad and Mom. Your Dad was my “brother” when I was growing up. Best big brother any girl could want. Both Heather and I loved him to bits. I remember the day you were born and how happy both of your parents were. Especially your dad. He was so proud to have a beautiful baby daughter. The day I married Roger, I was so happy to have you as my “Flower Girl”. our Mom and Dad agreed to let you stay at the reception, because you were so good. I also remember you crying and your Mom and Dad telling you I would always be there for you when you need me. I am so sorry I wasn’t there for you. This breaks my heart. You still have me if you need me.. Email me if you get a chance.. I love you to bits. Stay safe . Lots of hugs. Anne
