Dear Francis, Ron, Bonnie and family, I was sorry to learn this week about your mother's death. I think we only met once, when my family visited Grande Prairie in 1968. Your video tribute was very touching, and I enjoyed seeing pictures of Uncle Frank and Aunt Teenie who I remember, and the one with the Earl Mitchell cousins. Sincerely, Diane Mitchell Nishri, granddaughter of James Bertram Mitchell (brother of Francis Ford Mitchell)
