Steve good to hear from you, last I heard you were living in Madoc or Mamora or something like that.
Where are you now? Its funny I was just looking at some pictures of us in the trailers in Calgary, it seems like a lifetime age. How goes it with you?

Bob,

Heather and I are still in Saint John. Well the suburbs. We’ve been here since my release.

I’ve been in the Fire Department for 29 years. I’m eligible to retire next month but will likely stay for a few more years.

I’ve made contact with some of the old crew from Calgary via Facebook. It’s nice to look back an reminisce.

Steve how the heck are you and Heather? I heard that you were a Firefighter in St John. I tried to look you up a couple of times when I was down there for my folks funerals, my brother still lives there.
I usually get to St John once a year to check up on him and head to our cottage in PEI. Shoot me some contact info and I will get in touch pass that on to Steve B as well I just replied to him and forgot to put that in. I’m not on FB but my wife is. Great to hear from you it was a long time ago
