Love Letters to and from Sarah: A memorial tribute from her soul mate

Harris D Gulko has written under the pen name David G. Sirrah. 

His friendship with Sarah goes back to 1960.  When he returned from an overseas assignment they were both alone. What started as casual chatting between two long-time friends, developed into a most marvellous coupleness. 

He and Sarah were soul mates for only 42 months.  After she died he became aware that she had kept virtually all the emails, letters, poems, etc. he had sent her. 
He reproduced some of that correspondence and included some of his oil paintings. 
The net proceeds will go to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Twenty One Years in the Penalty Box.

Harold Skazyk was the official timekeeper for the Winnipeg Jets from the 1977-78 
season - their second-last in the WHA - until the team left for Arizona. 

The West Kildonan resident reminisces about many of the players, coaches, on- and off-ice officials, and games that made his part-time job “the best in the world,” including Wayne Gretzky, former Jets general manager John Ferguson and Coach Tom Watt. 

This book was written to acknowledge all the people Harold has met: from the hockey personnel during his coaching years at West Kildonan to those he met while an office official in the World Hockey League and the National Hockey League. 
If only the penalty box could talk.
