Dear Eleanor, Peggy, Jim and family, I was so, so sorry to read of Alec's passing. Although it has been decades since I have seen Alec, I still have found memories of him, especially from the summers at Shuswap lake. My heart goes out to all of you at this very difficult time. My deepest sympathies, Susan (Drackett) Tumback

Dear Eleanor, it is with a heavy heart that we express our sorrow at the news of Alec's passing. Alec was the kind of man that anybody would be proud to call a friend. Our time together at Mobil Oil was brief, but it was long enough to learn that when Alec spoke it was probably a good idea to listen. Never having heard a bad work from anybody with regards to Alec, is testimony to the fact that everyone felt as we do; that he was a straight shooter and utterly trustworthy. He was a good man. Words are never enough and messages like this are hard to write. Be aware that we are with you in spirit and ready to help you in any way we can in these difficult times.
