Dear Ruth,

Gloria phoned to tell us the very sad news of Oliver's untimely death. Both Don and I are extremely sad, and want to send you our love and deepest sympathy in the loss of your partner. We'll always treasure our memories of Oliver at school, the laughs, the tears we shed at all his crazy tricks, Mrs. Cameron, Mrs. Gray, Mr. Logie were the recipients of most of the jokes, and we, his classmates loved it and egged him on to do more..... He had the ability to make us laugh, and will never be forgotten. He made friends easily and will always be remembered by anyone who knew him. Our sympathy to you and your family. God Bless!

It is a rare event for me to be able to instantly recall meeting a person for three hours 17 years ago. Here was a modern day hero who fought fires for a living standing beside me across the frozen river explaining the vagaries of ice fishing. I was already in awe of Cheries dad. To meet Oliver for such a short time and still remember it so vividly is testament to a man I would have loved to spend more time with. My family send their deepest respects and Cherie....you know.
