Dear Editor:

We would like to thank everyone for your generous support towards the Parish family during the loss of our Dad, Chris Parish.

It was really more of a celebration of his life and it was great to hear over and over again from different people how Chris left the same great impression in their lives. To those who have supported our mother Marlene through this time of need, we appreciate your kindness.

Ken Rae, thank you for the eulogy; it summed Chris up perfectly as we all remembered him. Carsten Neilson and Anthony Giannotti for recalling the good times had with Chris. Thank you Brother Gerald for being with my dad bedside and for presiding over the funeral.

Thank you also to the Argo Road crew for dropping off Chris’s old snow plow, and to the staff at Penticton General Hospital who gave Chris a standing ovation as he was transferred to the great staff at Moog Hospice, who made Chris comfortable in the final days.

Dr Crabbe, thank you for your tireless care for Chris over these past years. Chris always made an impact on people and it may seem sad that he is gone in the physical, but he lived a great life and lives on in all of our memories.

Marlene, Gerald and Greg Parish
