Sorry I will not be able to make it to celebrate a life well lived with you on Friday. I am glad I was able to see him and spend some time with him a few weeks ago..

I'm sure there is a Big Paetkau re-union going on in heaven right now! It was a long time in coming - and while you will miss him here on earth - I'm sure he's very happy! May you find comfort in all the stories he told - - lets hope we can remember them as well as he could!
Rest in Peace Uncle Abe!
