Condolence: When it rained our mother would always take us to the book shop. Rain or shine it was always a pleasure living in the North. Most of our education was derived from the books we would bring back home after hours spent scouring the rooms. How fortunate we were to have the Highway Book Shop and Douglas Pollard as part of our youth.
Condolence: To Lois and family,
We extend our deepest to Lois and the family. Douglas will be sadly missed by all. Lois and Douglas encouraged me (Carol) to write a Wanapitei Canoe Tripping cookbook. It took me a couple of years to agree, not thinking I could do it. That was in 1982. It needed revisions as time went on, but instead a Canoe Tripping Cookbook II came out in 1999. The books were still in demand when Lois and Douglas went out of publishing. They directed me to Deborah Ranchuk in New Liskeard and Wanapitei Canoe Tripping III came out on August first 2009.
Sending prayers and sharing memories of the grand publisher, Doug, was for me. Always supportive, so understanding of the problems writers have in reaching an audience. He truly deserved his Order of Canada for all his efforts for others. Bernice

Condolence: Dear Peter & family and Paul and family: Rory and I wish to extend our sincere sympathy to you on the passing of your loved one. He has had one glorious life, accomplishing so many things that many of us only dream of. Such a gentleman , he always had time to chat. He will surely be missed by so many people who came to know him in his lifetime.
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Pollard today. My father (Hartley) considered Douglas a great friend, and he enjoyed the time that they spent together when he visited the Book Store over the years.
Please accept my condolences, and hopefully the fond memories of the past will help you through this most difficult time.
