With Sincere Sympathy To Kim and the Edey Family

Langley Free Press's Publisher is Kim Richter. LFP will be taking a temporary hiatus out of respect for the loss of Councillor Kim Richter's mother who suddenly passed away in Ottawa  just after 7 PM tonight. Kim was called away during the Township council meeting and advised of the tragedy.
This Editor can confirm that Kim was extremely close to both her parents and most especially with her Mother Mary since her father passed away  5 years ago in November. Kim has every year spent her summer holidays with her Mother in Ottawa and the attached picture of her with her mother was taken at the end of August this year. This picture was taken  at the Ottawa Airport when Kim was returning to Vancouver and is the last time she saw her Mother. Mary Mabel MacLeod Edey is survived by her sister, her 5 children and seven grand children. She was born in Milestone Saskatchewan on December 1st 1928. She shares the same December 1st birthday with her daughter Kim and Kim's daughter Graecen. We extend our deepest sympathy to the Edey family.

    My sincere condolences to you and your family on the passing of your dear mother. Karen and I were so fortunate to have spent some special times with her and your aunt since you introduced them to us some years ago. You always made sure that she was included in our get togethers so we could share good times together and for this we really thank you. Your mother was a wonderful and loving, caring and charming woman and we will certainly miss her.
    Bob & Karen Long
