To the Thiessen family,
So sorry to hear of the recent loss of your father and of also your mother. I have great memories of living with them when I first came to the lower mainland. They were a great couple and they both touched many lives in amazing ways. Out thoughts and prayers are with your family. Sincerely Edna and Dale Peters

From: Sharon Goertz
Relation: former tenant

There was an announcement in the Willingdon church bulletin last Sunday that Walter had passed away. In reading the obituary, I saw that Betty had also passed away 9 months ago. I wanted to send my condolences, as I have fond memories of Walter and Betty! I lived in their basement in Burnaby one year, and they were the best landlords! And then they supported me for many years as I served in Mali, W. Africa, and I was always happy to visit with them while in Canada. I had lost touch with them lately, and missed seeing them. I will always remember their joyful love of life, and the encouragement they gave me along the way. They will be missed! May the Lord give much comfort to the family!

Hi Phil and Family
I was sorry to hear about the passing of your father. With both of your parents passing within 9 months, it must be very difficult. Our prayers are with you all.
Just think, your folks and my folks are enjoying being reunited. It is difficult to believe, but that is the hope of all who believe.
God bless you all.
