Robert, it is with great sadness that I read of the passing of your wife Maija. Although, I am not sure that I had the pleasure of meeting Maija I certainly have fond memories of our working together at Prince Edward Heights. My wife Gail remembers you from your assistance with the children in her classroom. We wish you the best going forward as our journeys through life takes unexpected turns and tests our resolve to carry on. Your friend from the Heights, Gordon Fox
