    I was Dell's roomate in college - and good friend. Kieth, I'm so sorry.......we haven't heard for a couple years now and so I went online..........what a terrible thing...I am still reeling. I can verify what others have said; her intelligence was remarkable, her flame burned so brightly in every other way too. I am stunned and saddened; I will write to you, Kieth and family.

    When I arrived in Vancouver in 1968, Dell took me, a complete stranger, under her wing, giving me accommodation and helping me to find a roost of my own. Although our subsequent distant homes (she to Newfoundland and me to England) meant that coffee mornings were few and far between, we kept in touch with some great holidays. I will remember Dell with huge affection, in particular for her zest for life, her amazing organisational skills and her ability to laugh. Keith, Gabe, Alex and families... thinking of you lots. Dell was fab! Love, Janet.

    Yes, a dynamo, on the tennis court, in her kitchen and in her business. It is a word often used too loosely but "unique" applies to Dell.

    As a fellow-student with Keith and Dell at Simon Fraser, I can attest to the fact that they were smitten. And so were we who knew them and hung out with them and soaked up some of their warmth. It was a wonderful time to be alive and in such company.

    Thank you for this review of Dell's wonderful business career. She was a visionary in so many areas but also a very special friend to many. I am away from St John's at present and the article has helped a little to ease the pain of not being there as extended family at this time

    Dell was a friend and a client and a remarkable business woman, her legacy lives on not only in Living Rooms and Mummers the Word but also in the eyes of her beautiful grandchildren. She will be sadly missed.

    Thank you for writing such a great piece about my sister. She made an impact on the world around her, and we're all better people for having known her.

      I shall always have fond memories of our business and personal meetings. Saying she will be missed is certainly an understatement!! Stay strong Keith and extended family...............
