a fallen frontline hero

I took this photo at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial dedicated to the Canadian soldiers who fell at the battle of Vimy Ridge in 1917. Today I would like to dedicate it to a fallen colleague who was murdered on a modern day frontline in his walk-in clinic in Red Deer, Alberta. I did not know Dr. Walter Reynolds but I have no doubt he was as much a hero to his patients as the soldiers who gave their lives in Northern France all those years ago. I send my deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to his family, patients, colleagues and friends. I know we are all grieving with them. Dr. Reynolds and his family were very much in our thoughts as we walked today in the Pacific Spirit Park here in Vancouver.
