LETTER: Celebration of life honours man's love of animals

Dear Editor:

We would like to extend our sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended the 'Bear to Remember Day' at the Westmount Chevron Station to celebrate the life of our brother Barry (Bear) Daniel.

As we all know, "Bear" loved animals and shared this love by giving treats to every four-legged friend that ever set foot...or came into ... the Station.

More than $6,200 was raised for the Veterinary Technology program at Douglas College, which will be used for scholarships annually for students with outstanding academic achievement and outstanding clinical proficiency.

We also want to thank the amazing sponsors who donated so generously to make Bear's Day the best celebration of life ever! We are hugely appreciative of the messages of love and support we have received. Your kind words and generous donations pay tribute to our quiet and humble brother who touched many, many lives during his lengthy employment of more than 42 years at Westmount Chevron.

To all his hockey buddies, whom we can't forget ... he had so much fun with you all. And special thanks to those who gave him tickets to his beloved Canucks.
