Brian and Val Cole
A dear friend although we hadn't seen her for ages. Our youth was spent together in Chadwell Heath Essex England where we went to the same church youth group at Chadwell Heath Baptist Church. the Covenanters. When they left for Canada we followed soon after. I left England on May 31 1958 and Val the following October. They joined in greeting Val at Union Station in Toronto. Like me she had caught the liner the SS Homeric from Southampton to Montreal - transatlantic flight was in its infancy then. It being Thanksgiving weekend they bundled us in Bernard's little Morris Minor and took us to see Algonquin Park. We did lots with them and attended Oakwood Baptist Church where Val and I got married in 1959- September 5. Iris, then living in Morrisburg, was one of Val's bridesmaids. Although now living in Coquitlam BC a suburb of Vancouver,and having not seen her since before moving here in 1980 we'll miss feeling close to her. Bernard, Stefan, Greg and families we love you all. God Bless you, Brian and Val.
