To the Vandenburg family, my sincere condolence on the passing of Bill. I was at the Carp Bunker when he was there. Bill was always friendly and once or twice gave me some good advice. The Kanata legion does veterans visits to the homes. Mine was Stonehaven, I said to myself one of my veterans was a Bill Vandenburg. I wonder if that was the same Bill I knew. I was told that he was eagerly awaiting our visit. I looked into the room, well it could be him. We got talking and sure enough he was the Bill I knew. We talked about old times for a while. I reluctantly had to leave to visit other veterans. Just last week we were planning another visit. Sadly it is not going to happen with Bill. Bob Thomson Kanata

Vandenburg family Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your Dad and grandfather. I am saddened that we never got to talk before he passed. We travelled together to the Carp bunker for many years and he was one of the people responsible for me acquiring a job with the government. God bless him and your family as you celebrate his life. He is now reunited Shirley.
