New recycling regulations to impact agri businesses Multiple associations taking stand against MMBC program Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

The diversity of plants at the Van Belle Nursery in Abbotsford – the evergreens, roses, shrubs and vines – all have one thing in common. They are grown in pots. A new provincial recycling program set to take effect on May 19 will mean every pot will carry an added cost for Dave Van Belle, president of the nursery his parents founded in the ’70s. The government is gearing up to implement

the new and controversial regulations from Multi-Material B.C. (MMBC), an industry stewardship group which will charge businesses for recycling the packing and paper they generate. In 2011, B.C.’s recycling regulation was updated, with the goal of shifting the cost and responsibility for managing residential recycling from local government and taxpayers to the businesses that produce the materials. MMBC’s plan was approved by the Ministry of the Environment in 2013. MMBC is a non-profit that plans to operate the residential packaging

and printed paper collection and recycling system on behalf of the companies that pay into the program. Van Belle said he agrees with the environmental principles of the program – the nursery already recycles everything it can – but absorbing the additional cost of the program will be difficult, and he’s not certain it will achieve its goals. MMBC is poised to take over curbside recycling collection in the province, although Abbotsford has opted out of the program for now, as city Continued on A4

FVRD presents waste management plan Regional district has ongoing concerns over Metro’s incinerator plans

Fra s e r Va l l ey Regional District (FVRD) representatives presented details on its draft solid waste management plan March 13 at the request of the Metro Vancouver board. The plan is based on zero waste principles, which involves achieving a 90 per cent waste diversion

rate. Zero waste is an internationally recognized principle that supports extracting and repurposing all resources from the waste stream to minimize, to the greatest extent possible, residual garbage. FVRD is exploring alternatives to waste disposal, such as advanced materials

recovery, to complement its other source separation services. By implementing advanced materials recovery, the FVRD aims to steadily reduce its dependence on landfilling. An FVRD news release states Metro plans for 70 to 80 per cent diversion by 2020, but is reliant on

landfilling volumes of ash from two to three garbage incinerators for at least the next 25 years. FVRD has continuously clashed with Metro Vancouver over their plan to build another waste-to-energy trash incinerator in B.C., potentially in the Lower Mainland. Opponents charge

that any location on the mainland will cause toxin-laden air to be pushed up the Valley. Material recovery strategies are designed to extract every last resource possible from the waste stream by sifting through unsorted garbage and removing recyclable, composta-

ble and reusable material and to ensure they are recovered and either reused or recycled, instead of being burned. “Our region’s goal is to be clean and green, while being mindful of the cost to taxpayers and the need to maintain a sustainable, innovative and competitive market

for private industry,” said FVRD director Jason Lum, who added the FVRD has been referring continuous drafts of the plan to Metro Vancouver for comments since 2009, but hadn’t had feedback until now, adding it is “encouraging that Metro Vancouver has now shown some interest in the plan.”

Abbotsford Police (APD) have arrested two suspects in relation to a convenience store robbery on McKenzie Road last October. On March 25, with assistance from the Maple Ridge RCMP, APD took Louie Sparvier and Patricia Wilson into custody and charged them with robbery, disguise with intent, use of an imitation firearm and possession of stolen property. The Oct. 8, 2013 robbery happened just before 5:30 p.m. when a man entered the shop and confronted a 21-year-old female employee, brandished a handgun and demanded cash. The suspect fled on foot after being handed the money from the cash register. This incident was the fourth business robbery in 22 days at that time. APD spokesperson Const. Paul Walker said the other robberies are still under investigation.

Abbotsford Hospice Gala raised $70,000 This year marked a milestone for the annual Abbotsford Hospice Society Gala celebrating 10 years. The Moments of Hope event held March 1 raised $70,000, which will support critical front-line-services offered by the society and the construction of Holmberg House. The recent event showcased a program that included a welcome from Abbotsford West MLA and Minister of Finance Michael de Jong, an In Memoriam piece commemorating community leaders who died in 2013, and the live auction of one item – a special piece of jewelry donated by the grieving daughter of a previous client. Abbotsford Hospice Society (AHS) provides emotional and social support for people who are dying, as well as children, teens and adults grieving the death of a loved one. Since 1986, AHS has offered services such as one-to-one and family counselling, support groups, crisis debriefing, expressive therapies, music and play therapy for grieving children and support for teens. Construction is under way for Holmberg House, which will be the first adult hospice residence in Abbotsford, with 10 patient suites and two family suites.

Tax scammers snare $25,000

WELCOME TO ROTARY

Victim threatened with arrest if didn’t pay back taxes Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford woman was taken for $25,000 last Thursday in an income tax scam that has drawn public warnings by police. Abbotsford Police spokesperson Const. Paul Walker said the scammers used the same tactic that has snared other victims. This involved a caller posing as an employee with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), saying the woman owed back taxes and, if she didn’t pay by a certain time, the police would be sent to arrest her. The woman was instructed to go to a store, load $25,000 onto pre-paid Visa credit cards and then call back a number that was provided to her. She was instructed to provide the Visa number on the front of the cards, as well as the PIN number on the back. This enabled the scammers to use those credit card numbers online, likely to obtain cash advances, with no ability to identify the recipient.

ONLINE abbynews.com

Walker said the woman realized she had been scammed after she shared the story with family members, who had read about the fraud through news articles earlier in the week. They then reported the matter to police. Walker said, since police issued public notice of the scam last Tuesday, they have received 20 complaints a day from people receiving the fraudulent calls. He said many of these complaints have been coming from the South Asian community. Walker said in another instance last week, a woman was defrauded of $4,000 after the caller threatened to have her son deported if she didn’t pay her back taxes. The scam was first reported in Abbotsford in December but has picked up this month during tax season. The APD and the CRA continue to remind people to be cautious of anyone calling and claiming to be with the CRA, particularly if they are being aggressive or threatening. Anyone who wants to verify the authenticity of a CRA phone number can contact 1-800-959-8282 or visit cra-arc. gc.ca/cntct/phn-eng.html.

QUESTION

WebTalk

OF THE WEEK Do you feel adequately informed on the new provincial recycling program set to launch in May?

Moving geese along It’s true ... you really can’t walk the path in summer. It’s so dirty and don’t think about sitting on the lawn. It’s an unhealthy park for kids and adults but also such a beautiful park. Glad to see at least something is starting to get done. Elsie Poettcker Siebert

To answer, go to abbynews.com

Seeing as you can’t walk Mill Lake or let your kids play in the park because of the goose poop, I am all for it. There are lots of other small ponds and lakes around where [the geese] can go or back to wilderness areas where they belong. Deb Elrick Morrison

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Should it be a requirement for children to receive vaccinations?

So you’re going to push them out of the pond/ lake where they belong, and make them nest in neighbours’ yards or the mall parkades? I’d rather contain them to the lake instead of them nesting all over the buildings in town. I get they have a large population, but what a dumb idea. Curtis Wiebe

In the week since his service, I have had a couple stop at the side of the road to change my flat tire, a kind woman in a maroon van pay for my order at Tim Hortons, another woman go out of her way to give me her parking spot at the hospital, and a woman take a picture and call me to see if she has found my missing cat. These are the unsung heroes of everyday life, doing kind gestures just to benefit someone else. It made a difference to me and my children, and now I wonder if we, like these people, can take the challenge to be better people in our own lives – just like the late and great Jack Harris did.

Unsung heroes of everyday life On Saturday, March 22, many members of the Abbotsford community said goodbye to an incredibly kind and talented lawyer, G. Jack Harris. I was privileged to know Jack, both in and out of the courtroom. He is renowned for his enormous charitable contributions, his countless stories of a life well-lived and his wonderful sense of humour. At the end of the service, we were called to continue Jack’s legacy by finding our own ways to be generous and giving in our own lives. I would like to commend members of the community who have shown Jack’s example, people doing “little” things that have wide-ranging effects.

Butorac to face three separate murder trials Monique TAMMINGA Black Press

Davey Butorac of Aldergrove will be back in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster on April 17 to fix dates for new trials for murdering two sex trade workers. In October 2013, Butorac, 35, was granted new trials – after winning an appeal of his conviction – after he was previously convicted of murdering Gwendolyn Lawton, 46, of Abbotsford and Sheryl Koroll, 50, of Langley. Lawton’s body was found March 13, 2007 in a rural area of Abbotsford, while Koroll’s body was found in an industrial area of Langley City the morning of July 7, 2007. The convictions were set aside by the appeals court on the basis that the trial judge erred in accepting “the evidence of each murder as similar fact evidence with re-

spect to the other.” Butorac’s lawyer had argued before the initial trial that the two murder counts should be separated. The judge disagreed. DNA of the victims found in Butorac’s car and on his shoe led to

his original conviction. Butorac was sentenced to 23 years in prison for the murders. Also this year, he will go to trial for the second-degree murder of Aldergrove’s Margaret Redford, whose body was found floating

in Bertrand Creek in Aldergrove on May 20, 2006. Jury selection for that trial had been planned for last February, but was postponed until November and now is scheduled to take place this year.

APD scholarship awarded Det. Dan Culbertson is the recipient of the Abbotsford Police Department’s (APD) Paul Tinsley Scholarship. The scholarship is presented annually to an outstanding APD member who is pursuing a postsecondary education while serving the department with distinction. Culbertson has been an APD officer since 2003 and currently works as a detective in the major crime section. He previously served with the emergency response team, integrated gang enforcement unit, training section and patrol division. Culbertson has received several police board and APD management commendations, along with the Provincial Meritorious Service Medal in 2006 and the Provincial Medal of Valour in 2007, both for successful lifesaving efforts. In early 2013, Culbertson completed his undergraduate bachelor

of policing degree from Ontario’s Charles Sturt University, through which he is currently completing the master’s of leadership and management program. He later plans to achieve his doctorate in policing and security. The APD scholarship is named for Paul Tinsley, a former officer and deputy chief with the APD who died of cancer in 2005. After his retirement from policing in 2004, he became a full-time faculty member in the department of criminology and criminal justice at University of the Fraser Valley. To qualify for the scholarship, applicants must demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, well-defined academic goals and potential for success, and an intended field of study that is consistent with, relevant to, and supports the goals, objectives and future requirements of the department.

NEWS Heat School Game a Success

Yale Hockey Academy Claims U-16 Championship

Over 4,000 noisy middle school students from around the district plus hundreds of students from surrounding schools joined a cadre of regular game fans at the annual Heat School Day Game at the Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre in early March. Much time and effort went into the event from all sides, from the pre-trip planning in the classroom, transportation to the game, supervision at the game, and getting students all back to school safely. While not every student is a huge hockey fan, years from now, many of these children will remember the day, the fun that they had with friends, and will have a deeper appreciation of what it means to be Canadian. With lots of energy in the building, a good time was had by students, teachers and staff.

Yale Hockey Academy's U16 team won the inaugural Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL) Elite 15 Championship this month.Yale's U-16 team is part of an eight team division, with other teams from BC, Alberta and Idaho. In the championship tournament’s final game against Pursuit of Excellence Academy from Winfield, the Abbotsford team trailed 2-0 going into the third period, but rallied with four unanswered goals to win the league U-16 championship final 4-2. Four of the Yale players received individual league awards. Equally impressive was the fact that the boys also won the Most Sportsmanlike Team Award.

Family donates $15K to oncology unit Money used to purchase intravenous pumps The Van Pelt family has donated $15,000 to Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre (ARH) in memory of wife and mother, Susan Van Pelt. Arthur Van Pelt and his daughters presented the donation to Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation executive director Vicki Raw and staff of the ARH oncology unit. Susan died Jan. 17 of lung cancer due to smoking, despite having quit 23 years ago and maintaining

a healthy lifestyle since. The money will be used by the oncology unit at ARH to fund two CADD pumps. These are intravenous pumps for dispensing pain medication either on demand by the patient or on a schedule. The Van Pelt family is working towards saving others from Susan’s fate by lobbying government to restrict and ultimately stop the sale of tobacco in Canada. To learn more, visit susansbattle.com.

Abbotsford Homeowners Want to Know The Value of Their Home, But Are Afraid to Ask! Abbotsford – A hassle-free service allows homeowners to receive up to date real estate market information speciÀc to their home without having to meet with a real estate agent. Some homeowners are reluctant to meet with a realtor as they may only be in the early stages of planning a move or may not yet know if they will move. “Should we sell or stay? How much equity do we actually have?” Often these questions cannot be answered without knowing the current value of your home. Determining the value of your home is based largely on comparing your home to similar homes that have recently sold. This comparative approach should consider several factors – features of each home, location, neighbourhood, length of time on the market, etc. However, access to this type of information is generally re-

served for the real estate agents and their clients. This free service provides each homeowner with a Real Estate Market Update speciÀc to their property. This update includes detailed sales information of similar homes that have recently sold within the homeowner’s area, as well as the current listings. This data includes a photograph of each home, asking prices and selling prices, the number of days on the market, price reductions and a complete description of each home. To have a free Market Update sent to you, specially tailored for your home, call this 24 hour free recorded message at 1-800-251-4944, enter extension #4811. This hassle free, no obligation service is provided by Rod Poole of Landmark Realty Corp. You may also call Rod’s ofÀce directly at 604-309-6068.

Abbotsford News Friday, March 28, 2014

Alzheimer’s support offered As many as 50 per cent of Canadians with dementia are not diagnosed early enough. Jillian Armit, support and education coordinator for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. for Abbotsford/ Mission, said many local residents living with dementia are losing precious time when care and support can make a difference in their quality of life. An early diagnosis can also avert unnecessary crises. More than 70,000 British Columbians already live with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia; a number that is set to double within the next 25 years. Earlier

diagnosis also opens the door to important local information, resources and support through the society, which helps people with dementia focus on their abilities to remain independent in their homes and communities longer. A local support and information group serves as a forum for sharing practical tips and strategies for coping with the disease. For more information about local meetings, contact Armit at 604-859-3889 or jarmit@alzheimerbc.org. To learn how to spot the signs of dementia, understand the benefits of a diagnosis and prepare for a doctor’s visit, go to earlydiagnosis.ca.

Learn how to share your life story Those who are interested in sharing and preserving their life story in print can attend a free information session that will teach them how. The MSA Museum Society will hold its first session April 5, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. The sessions will be in collaboration with local writer, editor and personal historian Philip Sherwood,

whose company lifewriters.ca specializes in helping individuals, families, organizations, and communities tell and preserve their stories in book form. The sessions will give an overview of the life-writing process, provide a question and answer session, and point participants to several resources to get started. Individuals

who want to get going but need help with a plan can request a free one-on-one consultation. A free list of do-ityourself resources will be available at the museum and day-long seminars will be held for those who want more detailed help. Several fee-based services are also offered to those needing more assistance.

Two citizens recognized by police for heroics The Abbotsford Police Board has awarded commendations to two local citizens. Jesse Boyes and Michael Ercanbrack were honoured at the March 25 board meeting. Boyes was recognized for having intervened in a potential drowning on July 10, 2013. He was walking on Discovery Trail at Wells Gray Avenue and McKinley Drive when he spotted a teen who had fallen down a 30-foot embankment into a pond. The youth was suffering from a medical issue, and Boyes called 911. Although the victim resisted Boyes’ assistance, Boyes was able to wrestle him to the shoreline. He continued to struggle with the victim to keep his head above water until police arrived. The victim likely would have drowned without Boyes’ assistance, police acknowledged. Ercanbrack was recognized for his role in an incident in the early morning of Sept. 3, 2013. At that time, he was driving his tractor in the area of Tolmie Road and No. 3 Road when the

driver of a school bus alerted him to an upside-down truck in a water-filled ditch. The driver had attempted to get out of the truck, but he was unable to open the doors, and water was quickly filling the vehicle. Ercanbrack jumped off his tractor, was handed a hammer by a passerby, and waded to the vehicle. He then climbed on top of the submerged vehicle, smashed the passenger window and pulled the driver to safety. The driver of the truck was not seriously injured and later advised police that he knew he was in real trouble and might not have lasted much longer if Ercanbrack hadn’t come along.

ABBOTSFORD’S ACTIVE ADULTS A local monthly guide to events, resources and services for active adults

April 2014

Life is about making a contribution From the first day Milt Walker arrived in Abbotsford thirty-one years ago, he knew he could make a difference in the community. As executive director of the addiction and treatment facility, Kinghaven Peardonville House Society, Walker encourages those he works with to share his passion of volunteering. “Here at Kinghaven we deal with some pretty vulnerable and disenfranchised clients, so we teach them to give back, such as volunteering for Canada Day, and they really enjoy it,” he says. Since beginning his volunteer work in 1995 with the Western Canada Summer Games, Walker has remained a firm believer that you can’t accomplish very much unless you know the community. “I couldn’t live in a community that I wasn’t involved in,” says Walker. “The reward is working with the most incredible groups of people, whether it’s with multi-sport games, arts, heritage, culture, or the parks commission, you really get to the know the heartbeat of the community through its volunteers.” Walker has involved himself in

numerous community initiatives, including serving as vice-chairman of the Disability Games in 2002, then president of the 2004 B.C. Summer Games; he is currently chair of the Reach Gallery Museum Board of Directors, and became the Parks Recreation and Culture Commissioner five years ago. “I still want to expand programs that we can do here at Kinghaven, and I want to see expansions to the cultural programs that happen in Abbotsford,” says Walker. “As you can see, I am a very strong believer in giving back to the community.” Walker’s time is equally filled with community involvement as much as it is with his own leisurely activities. “I play squash and golf, I take piano lessons, I paint, and I constantly read; I have a book in my car, beside my chair, and one beside the bed,” says Walker. At seventy-five years old Walker admits that he gets asked every day when he plans to retire. “My answer is that I feel like I can still make a contribution, as I believe all the seniors in the community can,” says Walker. “For me, life is about

Milt Walker, executive director of Kinghaven Peardonville House Society, an addiction and treatment facility in Abbotsford.

making a contribution and learning every single day from somebody else.” And his secret to being happy and healthy at seventy-five is a simple one. “Be involved with a huge crosssection of people, both young and old, and remember that retirement and age are only numbers,” says Walker. “As long as I have my health and as long as there are opportunities, I believe that there are places to go, things to do, people to meet and experiences that I have never had yet.”

Abbotsford News Friday, March 28, 2014

When we need each other to make it through One in five Canadians aged 45 and older are providing some form of care for seniors living with long-term health problems. A Sharon Simpson quarter of all family caregivers are seniors themselves; more than 200,000 are older than 75. (citation: Eldercare: What We Know Today. 2008, Statistics Canada). With these facts in mind, I was honored to join a Family and Friends support group at a local residential care community. I had the opportunity to share my story of my father’s tragic diagnosis of multiple sclerosis at age 63 and the struggle for my family to make care decisions with and for dad. I shared how I live with the fear that his diagnosis will be my future as well. I left the caregivers support group with a warm feeling of connectedness and an affirmation that friendships were being forged that evening. CS Lewis knew what he was talking about when he said, “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What?! You too? I thought I was the only one.” There are a number of reasons why a caregiver can’t attend a support group, including the difficulty of getting to the meeting, the pressing need to provide 24/7 care to a loved one or the legitimate need to NOT want to hear what is

around the next corner for their loved one who is already suffering. For those who can attend a support group for caregivers, they will find that there are many treasures to be found in their group. Among them are: Opportunities to express the intense emotions of caregiving There are so many aspects to caregiving. There is the deep affection and commitment that a caregiver has for their loved one. Alongside that affection is the incredible frustration and anger about the disease. Without an appropriate outlet, this anger can be misdirected to the people closest to you, including the individual to whom you provide care. Relief of Alone-ness There is a tremendous sense of alone-ness in caregiving. It’s hard to find others in your regular social circles who are dealing with the same types of issues. There is also the challenging discipline of balancing what you will share with others and how you will maintain the dignity of the person you love. With whom are you safe to share the complete reality of the caregiving experience? Practical Ideas on how to manage your caregiving Support can come in the form of practical help – how to lift a person, how to turn a person in bed, how to connect with help from the health ministry. It can also be practical help on

how to cope with a loved one no longer recognizing you or their accusations that you are no longer faithful to your marriage vows. Support group members will have a wide variety of ideas that will give you tools to provide ongoing loving care. Remembering and Honoring In a support group for caregivers, you can share the life story of your loved one. Chronic illness, pain or dementia can dramatically alter the personality of the one you care for. It’s a wonderful opportunity to remind yourself, through sharing stories about the person you knew before the disease took hold of their mind and personality. Acceptance A caregiver support group can accept you and your situation for exactly what it is. There is no pretending necessary. Everyone around the table has dealt with the same types of emotions, challenges and outcomes of the disease. There is acceptance in shared experiences. Spiritual Strength There are many decisions that a caregiver will face, some of them are moral ones that are especially difficult in the midst of the hard work of caregiving. There are decisions about resuscitating your loved one, about having them enter a locked dementia ward, about personal hygiene, about involuntary separation. These are decisions

We bring our hear t to your home

that wear down the strength of the caregiver – and require spiritual support. Many caregiver support groups have members who have made these decisions ahead of you and understand the difficult process. They are often led by chaplains who will walk alongside you through prayer and discernment to help you make these decisions as they are required. Families can be tough sometimes It’s very difficult for families to move through grieving the chronic illness and deterioration of a loved one at the same pace as each other. There are times when a family is divided about having a loved one enter a residential care facility. And… dare we mention finances? Money can be a central divi-

sive point that causes stress to all involved. There are times when a support group of strangers can be a friendlier environment than a family meeting. Caregiving is an honorable and difficult calling. There are no awards shows for the Best Feeder or the Most Supportive Lifter and Bather. There are no trophies, no accolades and no bonus cheques. The rewards are spiritual and meaningful, but, in the meantime, it sure helps to have a group of people to cheer you on in the day-to-day work of caring for someone you love deeply. There’s no need to go it alone. Sharon Simpson is the Director of Communications and Marketing at Menno Place, a senior’s campus-of-care located in Abbotsford.

Get the most out of life with dentures Change is never easy, especially when it involves something as personal as your mouth. If you’re like most people 40 and older, you place a lot of importance on your smile because you believe it is the first thing that people notice about you. Your fears are not uncommon and many of

the patients we see who need dentures express the same concerns. Many people older than 40 are missing multiple teeth and have a full or partial denture, which means someone you know may be going through the same transition as you and may not even be

aware of it. Dentures can be made to closely resemble the look of your natural teeth so there is little change in appearance. By replacing missing teeth dentures can help you speak better, improve the chewing of most foods, and restore a natural-looking smile.

Your new dentures may feel awkward for 6-8 weeks until you get used to them. The dentures may also feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place. This feeling will fade as your mouth becomes accustomed to your new dentures. However, during

this time, you may want to consider using a small amount of denture adhesive to help keep your dentures in place. After 10 to 12 months your healing should be complete and your dentures will need relining for a better fit. Frequently Asked Questions: How long will my dentures last? There is not a removable prosthesis made for the mouth that is permanent. The mouth is constantly changing so on average, a partial or a denture may be expected to last about five years. Why are my dentures becoming loose? If your dentures are over five years old and if they have not been relined every two years you probably will have some problems with the fit of your dentures. Your gum tissue and jaw bone shrink with time. This causes the denture to become loose resulting in a poor fit. Poor fitting dentures can lead to bite problems, speech impediments and tissue irritations. Should I take my dentures out at night? If you choose to keep your dentures in overnight, always clean them thoroughly before you go to bed - just as you would your natural teeth, but use a denture cleanser rather than toothpaste, as toothpaste can scratch dentures. Leaving your dentures out at night gives your mouth and gums an opportunity to recover from the effort of supporting your dentures during the day. How do I take care of my dentures? Your dentures are an investment and require care and attention. Just like natural teeth, dentures always need to be cleaned morning and night in order to remove food particles and plaque. This is best done with a mild denture

cleanser. Your denturist will help maintain your denture(s) and oral tissues so they stay at their optimum performance. How long will the implants for my (dentures over implants) last? Reports show many implants lasting 20 years or a lifetime with proper care and regular yearly check-ups at your dental professional. These are the factors which could reduce the life expectancy of your implants: • your general health • oral hygiene • smoking • grinding your teeth Denturists are denture specialists; they specialize in the manufacturing of denture prosthetics. Denturists have a professional designation of registered denturist (RD). You do not need a referral from another health professional to consult with a denturist. A denturist can refer you to other health care professionals. Denturists are proficient and time effective in the delivery of denture treatments. Most denturists fabricate your prosthetics on premises, ensuring quality control and care.

Garden Park – promoting a sense of well-being in mind, body and spirit Community is at the centre of Garden Park Tower services for seniors. And not just for the residents. But ask a resident. Social interaction is a vital part of the Community Centre programs in the iconic Clearbrook tower where seniors find activity that ranges from sitting to striding. Health concerns are always in the forefront, physically and socially. Seniors are able to participate in physical activity or just sit – and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with friends in the popular Rose Room. Exercise is the focus of programs such as Bones & Balance or Health In Motion. Dee Van Meer is the certified fitness instructor who guides Bones & Balance every Monday morning to provide residents and the community with a convenient way to improve and maintain their health and lifestyle. Meanwhile, every Thursday morning certified instructor Colleen Moore leads Health In Motion – an exercise program designed especially for seniors who wish to stay mobile and fit through a set of rhythmic (not dance) movements set to music. Of course each of the programs is a great social setting to greet old friends and meet new ones. Just like the Rose Room; especially on Monday mornings when all the fresh baked buns tantalize the taste buds. To top off the exercise routines there’s carpet bowling on Tuesday afternoons, the only such opportunity in Clearbrook.

Garden Park Tower is where Abbotsford seniors can enjoy an array of activities. Adding to the social atmosphere are the great lunches served Tuesday, Wednesday and, especially Friday in the Magnolia Room, often spiced up with special concerts or topical speakers. The Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas lunches are never short of something spectacular for seniors and have, more often than not, sold out! You can follow-up Friday lunch with a grand old hymn-sing in the Azalea Room. Speaking of Specials – Garden Park Tower’s week-long Celebration of Lights – the Christmas spectacular of trees and music has become a must-see event after just two years!

We’ve barely touched on the complete range of services. Garden Park Hair Care, highly popular with community or residents, is a full-services, centrally-located salon for the entire Clearbook community. Not so well-known, perhaps, are two rare skills evident in bookbinding and picture framing. Dan Peters is a creative guy who can suggest any unique style to the framing of quality photographs or paintings. Four volunteers show off extraordinary skills in the restoration of valued old literary masterpieces and Bibles, a great service in saving cherished memories.

In addition, of course, are a number of rental areas that can be used for a range of activity from meetings and conferences to weddings and even church or chapel services. Even the Rose Room is available for rental in the evenings or weekends. The corner of Old Yale Road and Clearbrook Road is one of historic significance from the days of the ‘old’

Mennonite Educational Institute to its transition to Garden Park Tower. Garden Park Tower is also home to a variety of services aimed at not only seniors, but everyone. Services include the offices of M2W2; Mennonite Historical Society of BC; LifeLabs; Ed Fast, MP; Alzheimers Society of BC; Mennonite Foundation of Canada; Robertson Hearing; Weight Watchers; Garden Park Pharmacy as well as a number of medical doctors.

Getting to the bottom of a cup of tea Tea is a popular beverage that has been enjoyed for centuries. An estimated three billion cups of tea are consumed across the globe every day, with many people looking to tea when they are sick or to prevent illness. As popular as tea has become, certain misconceptions about tea have spread over the years. The following can clear up some of the more common misunderstandings about tea. MYTH: Different tea varieties come from different types of tea plants. FACT: Commercial tea comes only from the leaves of the camelia sinensis plant. Different methods of processing determine which variety of tea is produced. Black and oolong tea develops from oxidizing and fermenting tea leaves, while green tea is produced by steaming

wilted leaves. MYTH: Adding milk to tea negates the health benefits. FACT: According to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the same amount of catechins, which are antioxidants associated with a reduced risk of some diseases, can be absorbed from tea that contains milk as tea that does not. MYTH: Anything with the name “tea” is true tea. FACT: Only tea from tea plants constitutes real tea. Herbal varieties of tea are actually tisanes made from flowers and bark of other plants. MYTH: Fruits and vegetables contain more disease-fighting antioxidants than tea.

NEED DENTURES? FREE

FACT: Research indicates that tea has about 10 times the amount of antioxidants of vegetables and fruit. Individuals who consume reduced-calorie diets often find tea that is a good, no-calorie source of antioxidants. MYTH: Antioxidants can turn back aging. FACT: Antioxidants may contribute to personal longevity, but they cannot reverse signs of aging. Antioxidants have been known to neutralize free radicals in the body that can contribute to many different diseases, including various forms of cancer. MYTH: Tea never goes bad. FACT: It may take some time for properly stored tea to spoil, but the level of antioxidants in tea does begin to diminish after a few months. Research by the Journal of Agricul-

tural and Food Chemistry indicates catechins in green tea decrease by 32 percent in just six months. Tea is most beneficial to human health when it is consumed within six months of its production. MYTH: Tea has much less caffeine than coffee. FACT: The amount of caffeine in tea can vary. The average amount of caffeine in tea ranges from 14 to 61 mg per eight-ounce cup. Coffee, on the other hand, can contain between 27 and 200 mg per serving. MYTH: Hot tea is better for you than cold tea. FACT: As long as the tea is steeped in water long enough, both hot and cold tea provide the same bang for your buck.

Dog breeds that are especially compatible for seniors Pets often make ideal companions. They are around when a person needs support, they can provide protection for those living alone, they’re always willing to lend an ear to problems, and many tend to offer unconditional love. Seniors facing an empty nest or the loss of a spouse may find pets can buoy their spirits. Studies have shown that seniors can benefit both mentally and physically from having a pet around. Pets can alleviate anxiety, depression and boredom. While pets can provide comfort and companionship, they remain a significant responsibility. Seniors should find an animal that will fit in with their lifestyles. This is an important consideration for those seniors who travel frequently or have mobility issues. In addition, men and women living in senior communities or assisted living facilities should determine if there are any pet restrictions in place. Those seniors who have decided that a dog will be the best fit can choose among several breeds that may be a good match for their needs. When selecting a dog, consider both size and temperament. Smaller dogs tend to be easier to handle and will need less maintenance. They are easily carried and won’t take as long to bathe and groom. Smaller dogs also consume less food than larger breeds, reducing the expense of dog food and the hassle of wrangling large, heavy bags of chow. Temperament is also important, as some breeds tend to be more easy-going than others. Larger breeds may be preferable to smaller breeds, which tend to be hyperactive. However, always remember there are pros and cons to each breed, and each dog will demonstrate his own personality traits. The following are some dogs that can be especially compatible with seniors.

The loyalty and intelligence of schnauzers makes them ideal companions. ■ Pug: Equally playful and willing to be a lap dog, the pug requires little exercise and grooming. The breed is typically non-aggressive and submissive. Pugs are good-natured and playful; they don’t often bark and are easy to train. ■ Shih Tzu: The Shih Tzu lives for attention, but this breed can be dominant and difficult to train. The Shih Tzu will be alert to its surroundings and, despite its small stature, can be a good watchdog. ■ Pomeranian: Pomeranians look like big balls of fur and can bring a smile to an owner’s face. The breed tends to be perky, can display domi-

nance and can be difficult to train. Because Pomeranians can be dog-aggressive, they may be best as the only pet in the house. ■ Yorkshire terrier: The Yorkie is a diminutive breed in size only, as they tend to have exuberant personalities that dwarf their stature. The ideal lap dog, Yorkies want to lie around and lounge, though some do like to bark. If the fur is kept short in a “puppy cut,” the dog can be easy to maintain. ■ Pembroke Welsh Corgi: This medium-sized dog hails from Wales and typically requires only moderate exercise and little grooming. They are

easy to train and moderately dominant. They don’t bark excessively, and they often get along with other dogs. ■ Schnauzer: Available in three sizes, schnauzers are good companions and protectors. This is an intelligent and loyal breed and will need to be kept amused to stave off boredom. ■ Brussels griffon: These dogs do not shed, but they will require professional grooming at least once every three months. If socialized early, the griffon can be a good companion but will likely remain wary of strangers. They are good watchdogs and devoted to their owners.

This month’s Sudoku solution:

How to save on your next flight The cost of travel continues to increase, especially for those travelers who prefer to travel by air. According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, the average roundtrip flight in 2011 cost consumers $362, a 7.8 per cent increase from the previous year. What’s more, that figure does not include taxes or additional airport costs, which can include potentially expensive baggage fees. It’s no surprise then that many would-be travelers are somewhat reticent to fly, especially if those travelers are going for an extended vacation and have lots of baggage in tow. However, there are ways to save on flights; it just takes a little flexibility and a willingness to shop around. ■ Don’t insist on non-stop flights. No one

airlines, which can make the overall cost lower. ■ Be flexible with airports. Many online travel sites, including Orbitz and Expedia, allow consumers to search for flights departing from and arriving to multiple airports. This is done to give travelers more flexibility and ultimately to help them find the most affordable flight. Take advantage of this option. However, before booking the flight, consider the costs associated with getting to and from an airport that’s farther away from your desired destination than the airport that’s closest to both. The cost of transportation to and from an airport that’s off the beaten path might offset the savings on the cost of the flight.

likes layovers, but they might just save you a substantial amount of money. Compare the cost of a non-stop flight to your desired destination to one that has one or even multiple stops. Chances are the cost of a non-stop flight will be considerably more than a flight that includes at least one layover. Though connecting flights are not ideal, many international airports now offer a host of stores and restaurants that can help make those layovers more bearable. ■ Don’t necessarily choose a round-trip ticket. Though it’s almost second nature for travelers to purchase a round-trip ticket, it might be more affordable to buy two oneway tickets instead. This allows consumers to compare prices of tickets from different

on Canadians hoopsters playing south of the border, the exposure isn’t to the same level for those in the Div. 2 ranks. T h a t ’s w h e re Klassen finds himself – he’s playing at Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU), an NCAA Div. 2 program in San Diego. But rest assured, Klassen is making a name for himself. The dynamic 6’1” point guard, B.C.’s high school player of the year in 2010, is coming off a fantastic junior season with the PLNU Sea Lions. He was named a Pacific West Conference honourable mention all-star after averaging 12.8 points per game and shooting 41 per cent from three-point range, and capped the campaign by guiding his squad to a National Christian Colleges Athletic Association (NCCAA) championship last week in Indiana. “It’s cool to end the season on a win,” Klassen told The News. “There’s so few teams in college basketball that get to do that each year.” Klassen knows a thing or two about ending with a win. In 2010, he led the Yale Lions to the B.C. AAA championship, racking up 25 points and 17 rebounds in a 49-40 title-game victory over White Rock Christian Academy. He subsequently signed with Point Loma, an NAIA program at the time which moved up to NCAA Div. 2 in 2012. Klassen was in the starting lineup from the get-go played for the Sea Lions during their last two NAIA seasons, then took a redshirt year because Point Loma was on probationary status for two seasons as they transitioned to NCAA Div. 2. The goal was to extend his eligibility to the 2014-15 season, which is the first year the Sea Lions will be eligible for post-season play, including the Div. 2 version of March Continued on A36

Abbotsford News Friday, March 28, 2014

Grade 11 catcher Tanner Rempel will be counted on to be one of the Abbotsford Cardinals’ key contributors during the 2014 B.C. Premier Baseball League season. Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

DAN KINVIG Abbotsford News

Some days, Abbotsford Cardinals head coach Corey Eckstein would just love to wipe the smile off Tanner Rempel’s face. It’s not quite as bad as it sounds. It’s a compliment, actually. Rempel, the Cardinals’ highly talented catcher, is a bit of a comedian who (quite rightly) enjoys playing baseball. And Eckstein doesn’t begrudge him that. It is, after all, a game.

But in the B.C. Premier Baseball League, the province’s elite under-18 circuit, the game is also serious business. That’s because of the stakes – players are battling for college scholarships and for a shot at being selected in the Major League Baseball draft. Rempel, a 16-year-old Grade 11 student at Yale Secondary, has already been hearing from U.S. colleges, and Eckstein believes he’s got the tools to play pro ball, though he won’t be drafteligible until next year.

to max out that potential, he needs to mix in the odd grimace amongst all the grins. “He’s just this happy-golucky kid, which is fine,” Eckstein said with a wry chuckle. “But you’d like to see more fire in the belly. Everything is always OK with him. He’s got to get upset once in a while – show a little bit of fire and a little bit of grit.” That Eckstein is challenging Rempel in terms of his mental approach indicates he believes the youngster can be special.

Rempel, Cards gear up for regular season ‘More fire in the belly’ the next goal for talented catcher Last season with the Junior Cardinals (age 14-16), Rempel hit .292 with 18 RBI, a .438 on-base percentage, and a team-high 25 walks and 17 stolen bases. He also earned multiple call-ups to the senior team, and played in the BCPBL Final Four hosted by the Cards. “Defensively, there’s not much better in B.C. than him behind the plate, or at third base for that matter,” Eckstein said. “And the kid can swing – it’s got to be just a little bit more consistent.” Continued on A39

Rempel said his stint with the senior Cards last year helps him out as he prepares to move up to the big team fulltime this season. “The atmosphere was so different than playing down in junior – bigger guys, faster ball,” he said. “This year, I’d like to be more of a role model on the field. Last year I was sort of the little guy coming up . . . But this year, I’ve got to be one of the bigger guys.” Rempel loves cracking jokes, but he understands Eckstein’s emphasis on bearing down. “It all makes sense,” he said. “The two personalities just have to find their place to be. The comedic side has to be practices, hotel rooms, hanging out with the team. And the more serious side has to be out on the field, being more engaged out there.” Q The Cardinals open the BCPBL regular season in two weeks’ time at DeLair Park, hosting the Langley Blaze on Friday, April 11 (7 p.m.), and the Coquitlam Reds in a doubleheader on Sunday, April 13 (12 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.). The 2014 edition of the Cards has a tough act to

follow – the 2013 squad set a team record for victories, won the first playoff series in club history, and finished a programbest third at provincials. Eight players landed college scholarships, and one – Kurtis Kostuk –  was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Beyond Rempel, Eckstein will look for key contributions from returnees like Jesse Braun, Liam Shibata, Joel Van Ee and Liam KanoMcGregor. The Cards also added Cloverdale native Matthew Reston, a 6’5” corner infielder who can hit for power. “Last year was definitely a breakthrough for this program,” said Abby first baseman Benji Wieler. “We know we can win in this league, and that’s big. If we can hot at the right time, who knows what can happen?” Eckstein suggested this season is a bit of a rebuilding year at the senior level, but he’s bullish on the young talent on the Junior Cards and Abbotsford Minor Baseball’s bantam teams. Epitomizing the youth movement is Ethan Kano-McGregor, a switch-hitting shortstop

who will be the lone fulltime Grade 10 player on the senior Cards. Q Eckstein took a step forward in his own career in October, when he landed a scouting job with the Kansas City Royals. He covers the Western Canadian

high school and college scenes for the big-league club, and keeps tabs on the Canadian junior national program. “I pinch myself – it’s always been my goal to be part of professional baseball, somehow, some way,” he said.

A massive 51,895 will park a new car on their driveway, 32,312 will house a sport ute in their garage, while another 28,395 will opt for a truck out front. Keith Morgan

Question of the week:

Driveway readers to spend billions to buy a new set of wheels Driveway readers are in the mood to splash out an astonishing $3.6 billion-plus of their hard-earned cash to buy new vehicles this year. This is not some by Keith Morgan wild, optimistic prediction but a solid forecast based on what our readers revealed in a comprehensive survey conducted on behalf of Black Press by Pulse Research, a company with 30 years of experience in asking the right questions of consumers. In a series of wide-ranging interviews, Black Press newspaper readers from all over the province gave Pulse a comprehensive account of their spending plans. Their intention to spend $53.1 million on fish and chips, $45.8 million on tooth whitening, $13.1 million on tattoos or piercing, $9.1 million on pet toys and $1.9 million on tuxedos, raised some smiles. But the auto spending intent grabbed our serious attention. A massive 123,275 households will take vehicles for a spin and sign on the dotted line. A massive 51,895 will park a new car on their driveway, 32,312 will house a sport ute in their garage, while another 28,395 will opt for a truck out front. Most people surveyed knew what kind of wheels they would be looking for and what they were prepared to pay.

I can remember buying my first truck in 1986 like it was yesterday. It had to be a specific make and model I was looking for. A Toyota 4x4 pick-up, black in color and it had to be in good shape. I wanted it to be bone stock with as little mileage as possible. I found one in the paper, it was on a lot at a dealership in Surrey. Quickly I called them to inquire and they said they had a couple of people with deals written up, but it didn’t look like they were going to go through, so if I wanted it I had better get down there right away (naive at that age to fall for an old trick like this). I had to get a ride from a friend and I remember it was snowing, so it was slow getting there. When I arrived, it was running and they were anxious for me to drive it. I took it around the block and parked it in

a vacant lot, hopped out and started to inspect it. I immediately noticed rust and some body damage. Clearing the snow off inside the truck box, I could see more damage. It looked like someone had dropped a bowling ball into it from a high ledge. I could smell antifreeze and noticed some oil leaks. I headed back to the dealership disappointed. The salesman was there to greet me. He asked if I had any concerns and I started to point out the obvious. He quickly dismissed them as

cosmetic and said do you want to write a deal on it because he has people in the showroom wanting to buy it. I told him I was not interested. On the ride home, I thought how quickly I had to grow up and look at everything as if someone was going to take advantage of me; a sad reality. The next day I picked up the latest copy of Truck Trader and spotted the exact make and model I was looking for. I bought the 1983 edition for $9,000 from a family that only used

it once a week to drive to Abbotsford and back to Coquitlam for supplies. It was perfect; funny how God puts things in your path and everything works out in the end. A week later I started to work on it. I acquired some used 33 inch tires and installed a 4” lift kit. I drove that truck every night after work to show it off. I washed it so many times I thought the paint was going to come off. A year had passed and I purchased many more items for the truck. A major car show was coming up soon and I decided I would put it in the back of the shop and work on it so I could enter it into the show. Giving up my truck for a month was tough and I had to make a few sacrifices to get around. My first car show was a hit. I came in second place and I was determined the folcontinued on page 29

“Somewhere along the line, the rebuilt status was dropped.”

just can’t keep it anymore,” I lied. In reality, I imported the car from Washington. It came with documents that mentioned New York State. The title was clean, so I assumed it was in good condition. I priced the vehicle quite high – well over its value. But he didn’t know, and he didn’t ask any more questions. I told him I had another buyer interested (another lie), and that he had to make a decision right away. With no hesitation, he got a bank draft and I gave him the keys. Like I promised, I threw in the new tire gauge. Marty gave me a wink and slowly drove off. Another foolish customer, I thought. No history report to keep me on my toes. And worse, he needs to get it inspected, registered and insured within 30 days - I didn’t bother. I just got my buddy in Bellingham to help me get it across. That evening, I took out the papers I’d received with the car. I decided to go over them more thoroughly. I guess I was a bit bored. Turns out, the vehicle had been registered in four U.S. states. Somewhere along the line, the rebuild* status was dropped. Probably intentionally. The inspection and ICBC will catch that. And who knows if the odometer is right? At least it’s no longer mine. *Rebuild – A vehicle written off as a total loss by an insurance company, then rebuilt and certified for use. This term does not describe a vehicle that has a new or repaired motor, transmission or other major part. Rebuilds offer savings when repaired well, but a buyer has a right to know it was rebuilt.

It’s only been a month, but I can see myself selling cars for a long, long time. I feel like a new man. One evening, I was in line at the superstore. An elderly gentleman saw my shopping cart. I had a new digital tire gauge that I was going to give to my next buyer. Turns out he was looking for a used car as he’d recently given his car to his grandson. He just needed something basic. “This is your lucky day!” I told him. The old fellow was around my father-in-law’s age – close to 80. He walked with a cane and had two ear pieces. I was practically shouting to him. What an easy sale. I decided to give him a ride and show him the car. He went on to tell me about his young granddaughter, too. At any rate, we got to the car – it was a base model with an automatic transmission. “It’s perfect for you, sir!” I exclaimed. He got in and sat at the wheel. His face lit up right away. I could tell that he’d been a car enthusiast in his younger days. “Where’d you get this car, son?” he asked me. “It’s my dad’s old car – he passed away and I

Building a monster Continued from page 28

lowing year I would be back with something they have never seen before. I poured most of my paycheques into my truck and took it off the road for two months to prepare for its transformation. I called up the owner of Interco Tire and asked about some Super Swamper tires. He said he had a set of 44x18.5x15 tires in his office that nobody has seen before. At that time the largest they made were 42”. I told him to send them to me I would figure out what I had to do to fit them under the truck. When they came in they looked big. So big I was getting worried. The custom leaf springs came back from the spring shop and I knew my calculations were correct. With all the multiple shocks in place, chassis freshly painted, motor work done, and lower gears installed, it was ready for the tires. I cleared away the debris pile that accumulated around my truck.

Placed the floor jack under the rear axle and started to jack it up. With the rear tires on and clearing the fenders it was time to move to the front. When I started to lift the front I noticed how high the hood was getting, at that point I knew I had built a monster. With all the tires in place, I slowly drove it out of the shop. The sun gleaming down on the freshly polished paint and the smell of paint burning off the exhaust system still sticks in my mind. Outside it looked like a beast; people were slowing down to take a look. The show was a week later and I came home with first place. Mission accomplished. It was worth every penny of the $12,000 I put into it. Then I sold it for $15,500 in 1990 so that I could afford to get married . . . need I say more? Tell me your truck story and please send pictures. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca

IN MEMORIAM IN LOVING MEMORY OF

ANNE PATRICE ARPIN

INFORMATION

In Loving Memory of Frieda Driessen March 9, 1926 - March 30, 2007 A special Mom we had, for that we know is true, You gave to us abundantly in every way of you. Your beautiful smile & sparkling eyes, the way you made us laugh, You left this earth so peacefully, as you traveled Heaven’s path. Your memory gives us strength, it’s what guides us through, God greeted the best Mom ever, the day that He welcomed you. So whenever we are lonely and need a loving hand, We know that you will guide us, in life to understand. That each day you walk beside us, we will never be alone, One day we’ll walk beside you, when God calls us home.

Always in our thoughts Oma, the Driessen family

In Loving Memory of Jenny de Jong (Hubach) May 21, 1927 ~ March 24, 2014

After a long battle with various illnesses over many years, Jenny de Jong (Hubach) was promoted to the eternal peace she longed for, by her redeemer Jesus Christ. Her faith in God was steadfast throughout her nearly 87 years. Jenny died peacefully in her home, March 24, 2014. Jenny was born in Ijselmuiden, Holland, May 21, 1927, and raised in Kampen, in the Netherlands. She worked away from home as a young teenager to help her family during WW2. In later years she became a care giver for many elderly and ill people. She met her husband to be, Henk de Jong, who had immigrated to Canada, and was living in Telkwa, BC, by being pen pals with him. After Henk made a trip back to Holland to meet Jenny in 1952, they were engaged to be married. Henk returned to Canada. When she could, Jenny also immigrated to BC. They were bonded in marriage on June 5, 1953, in Telkwa, BC. They had four children while living and working in the Bulkley Valley for 20 years. They moved to Surrey, BC, where they lived for 14 years. In 1987 they moved to Abbotsford, BC where they eventually retired, and celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. With heartfelt sadness Jenny will be lovingly remembered and missed by her loving husband Henk, their four children: Alice (Bob) Veysey, Peter (Nellie) de Jong, Renee (Albert) Santema, and Jenny Marcus, and by her 12 grandchildren, and 9 great grandchildren. Funeral Service will be held in the Emanuel Free Reformed Church on Mt. Lehman Road, Abbotsford, BC on March 29 at 10:30 am. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to a charity of choice.

RATZLAFF Eric It is with a profound sense of loss that we share the passing of Eric Ratzlaff, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. After an all too brief battle with pancreatic cancer, Eric passed peacefully into the eternal presence of his Lord on March 25, 2014 with his wife and daughters by his side. He was predeceased by his parents, Richard and Martha Ratzlaff and two sisters, Edith Leona Ratzlaff and Betty Phillips. He is survived by his loving family, wife of almost 53 years Katie, daughters Catherine, Marcy (Randy), Trish (Laurie) and Carolyn (Jason); grandchildren Caleb, Sarah, Amber, Calvin, Kate, Kelsey and Eliot. Eric lived his Christian faith on a daily basis, modeling his Heavenly Father’s love to those he encountered. Eric found immense fulfillment in his 37 years of teaching and delighted in meeting former students and colleagues. He enjoyed his many walks in the community and around Mill Lake. A memorial celebration will be held at Bakerview M.B. Church on Thursday, April 3rd at 1:30 pm. Thank-you to all those medical professionals who provided care to Eric and his family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) in Eric’s memory. Online condolences to the family may be offered at: www.wiebeandjeskefh.com

Tina Catherine

www.woodlawnfh-abbotsford.com

(nee Fast) Following a brief but very brave battle with cancer, Tina passed peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Saviour with her loving husband at her bedside on March 22, 2014. She was a dedicated wife, mom, grandma, greatgrandma, sister, aunt, friend and neighbour who will be deeply missed by her husband John of 57 years, four sons; Ken (Conny), Jim (Lucy), Carl (Christine) and Steve (Chris); 13 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren; siblings Anni, John (Mary), Arnie (Maria); and sister-in-law Carol. Predeceased by her brother Hank. Tina was born on August 14, 1937 in Alexanderfield, Ukraine. She immigrated to Canada with her family as a young child, where they settled in Arnold, BC. She met John Coers in 1954 and they married on October 6, 1956. They eventually settled in Sumas Prairie and started their own family dairy farm on Cole Road April 1, 1968. Many years later they retired from farming in November 1996. Her door was always open to family and friends with a cup of coffee and something baked. She enjoyed many activities which included travelling and camping, shopping for bargains, bowling (43 years), watching curling, knitting, baking, and reading. Tina had a strong faith and she was involved in a variety of activities within her church, including dedicated support of their missionaries. The family would like to extend our very sincere thanks to the staff and volunteers at Christine Morrison Memorial Hospice. A celebration of Tina’s life will be held on Friday, April 4th, 2014 at 2:00 pm at Grace Church, 2087 McMillan Road, Abbotsford, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Gideons or a charity of your choice.

MOORE

EDNA MAE JEAN

FEBRUARY 9, 1922 - MARCH 19, 2014 On March 19th, 2014, Edna Mae Jean Moore (nee Nesbitt) loving wife of James Addison (deceased) passed away peacefully at the age of 92 with family at her side. Born in Toronto on February 9, 1922 to parents Robert and Jane Nesbitt (nee Dowd), Jean married Walter Kingsmill Tingey in 1942 and was blessed with a daughter, Marilyn. She remarried in 1946 and had a second daughter Daphne (deceased). Jean played badminton in Ontario and spent many weekends canoeing in Algonquin Park with her family. She had a great love of music and enjoyed playing the piano. In 1970, Jean and her husband adopted two children, Cindy and Steven. The family lived in many locations in Canada and the United States, before settling in British Columbia where Jean became an avid golfing enthusiast, eventually winning the Ladies Championship at Newlands Golf Course. She also had a great love of Labrador dogs, an important part of her life. Jean was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was blessed with an extended family that included four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Affectionately known as GG, she will be sadly missed by her daughter Marilyn Cole (Harry), daughter Cindy Meade (Troy), son Steve (Janie), grandchildren Mike Henry (Diane), Susan Gaytmenn (Jonn), Tara Heacock (Kurt) and Carley Moore, and great-grandchildren Ashley, Dallas, Cole, Kaeden, and Rian. She will also be missed by her sister Muriel MacIsaac and her family, and nieces and nephews. Her generosity extended beyond her family to the Mission Gospel, the Salvation Army and the SPCA amongst others. The family would like to acknowledge the staff at The Cottages Pavilion, the nurses at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre (Baker 2 section), and the Abbotsford Alzheimer Society’s Support Group for the kindness they provided in making Jean’s later years more enjoyable. For those who know and loved Jean, she will be forever in our hearts. She was a gentle woman who always tried to do the best for others and will be fondly remembered as being “29 years and some months” old. It was Jean’s wish that the family hold a private gathering in celebration of her life. Online condolences to the family may be made at www.woodlawnfh-abbotsford.com Woodlawn Funeral Home 604-853-2643

Lennart was pre-deceased by parents Gideon and Lisa Stroman, and his brothers Rune and Hans Stroman, Bengt and brother-in-law Sven Mathiasson. He will be fondly remembered by Eva, his wife of 57 years, and children Ted (Sima), Kjell (Petra), and Johan (Julie) and his grandchildren Björn, Leif, Anika, Freya, Kristian, Mattias, Sarah & Lily brother in law Mats & nephews & nieces Roger, Margareta, Jan, Eva-Mia, Björn, Dag, Lena & other extended family. Born at Akademiska Hospital in Uppsala, Sweden, and raised on Aspnäs farm, and served in the Swedish military. Lennart travelled in his early years around Sweden as a salesman of agricultural machinery and then to England. In later years business expanded to North America with Scandinavian modern furniture. He also worked with industrial machinery and as a Realtor before retiring. In the 1960’s when he visited the West coast he fell in love with the rugged nature, the wide-open space of the Fraser Valley, and the beaches of Vancouver Island. He saw a great future for our sons, Ted, Kjell and Johan. Len loved fishing, goldpanning, hiking and mushroom picking - anything that brought us to the outdoors. We got to know wonderful friends and neighbours forever. In time we celebrated our sons’ weddings and many loving grandchildren. All these happy years went by so fast. Our Len. You are here, but you are gone. Len’s death was sudden, despite a long battle with cancer. The family wishes to express their sincerest thanks to Dr. Newton and Dr. MacGregor for their support and skills. Many thanks also to the doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers at both Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Vancouver General Hospital. A memorial will be held in April. In lieu of flowers and gifts, donations to Jean C. Barber Lodge (BC Cancer Society) are encouraged.

MANLY Herbert George Oct. 3, 1917 ~ March 24, 2014

George Manly passed away quietly after a short illness at the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission, BC. He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
