Dear Myrna, Kevin and Garth and families,
It was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Uncle Ross. I have many wonderful childhood memories of time I spent at your home in Edmonton and at Gull Lake. Like Myrna, I also remember playing charades on special occasions, which was always a lot of fun for everyone. I recall once when Uncle Vernon was visiting that two of the charades from that night were "Jude the Obscure" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof". Fortunately there were charades for the younger participants as well!
Uncle Ross was a quiet man of high principles who did not need to raise his voice to be heard. I was fortunate to see Uncle Ross and Auntie Ruth on occasion when they were still living in Edmonton. They often came to Christmas concerts when I was with Greenwood Singers. He loved our arrangement of Ava Maria.
He is now with his beloved wife and his memory will remain in the hearts of his family forever.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless,
Your cousin Gayle Lindberg
Our deepest condolences to the family of Ross Johnson. May his soul rest in eternal peace, and may you all find the strength and fortitude to bear this tragic loss. One solace in our Muslim faith is that he is now in a better place joining your beloved wife Ruth. At 96, he led a good life, as attested in his belief "My family is my greatest treasure!"
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
Parin and Mahedi Meghani
