This Afternoon

2017_02_11Vas Rotgans was our neighbour for the most recent four or five years. He and his wife have been very considerate neighbours. Their door opens right beside ours in the hallway of our building. Vas passed away on January 18, 2017.

This afternoon, we went to a memorial service celebrating his life. It took place at the Knox Presbyterian Church in Sapperton, across from the Royal Columbian Hospital. We had never seen the inside of the building.

Vas lived a very full life recently reaching his 89th year. He was very active right up to the end. When they first moved here, I found it hard to believe how old he was. I hope I can still drive here and there at the age of 88.

It was interesting to learn more about the very different aspects of his life today.
