  8. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss, Michèle, JF, Gabrielle and family. My favourite memory of Ken was when you were visiting JF & Gabrielle in Calgary one Christmas about ten years ago and playing a game called Timeline. Ken was amazing, he new his history and could easily beat us all at this game, even correcting some of the dates that the game had wrong. I hope you find comfort in all the wonderful memories and time spent together.
