From: Henry Fetigan
Relation: Long time bank manager and friend

It was a pleasure to have known Syd and Joan in my capacity as the branch manager of Bank of BC in Chinatown in the 70’s and 80’s. Their frequent visits to my office were always a joy. Over the years and since my retirement in 2000, I lost contact with your parents. Just want you to know how much I appreciated them as friends. God bless to all the family and my sincere condolences on your loss.
