    I’m so thankful that Blair and I were able to reunite after 50 years! We spent many hours reminiscing over all the great times we had and all the things we enjoyed together, skating, watching him play hockey, the times at Wally’s where he loved to sing songs like ‘The House of the Rising Sun’, dances at Alberta Beach, even duck hunting, and we laughed a lot.

    big bear hug he gave me.

    RIP dear Blair. In my heart always.
