    My greetings and sympathies to all the Macklin family, especially Dorothy, Tim and all Tom's direct descendants. As the last living sibling in his family, his passing reminds us of a bygone era, one of pioneers and homesteaders. May we, all the descendants of the Peace Country Macklin clan, uphold the most noble of that era's values in today's world. I had planned to attend Thursday's funeral service but the current volatile conditions related the the wildfires has unfortunately made travel from Edmonton very perilous. I will hold you all in my prayers and wish you all the best in the days and weeks to come. Larry Lynch Grandson of Ruby (Macklin) O'Rourke
