We are thinking of Mr. Stanley and his family today. He often sat behind us at the Kootenay Ice hockey games where we got to know him. Our sawmill connection and hiking up Gibraltar look out was our common ground. Our deepest condolences to the family. Mr. Stanley will be missed. Wendy Larsen, Laine Evans
