Dear Wanda and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you journey with the grief and loss of your beloved husband, father and grandfather. Orland has passed over the ridge, just out of sight…. may the love he showed for you over the years, sustain you in the times ahead until you meet again.

Mim Kunz

Wanda and Lehman family. I consider myself lucky to have worked with Orland first in Red Deer ICU and later at the Central Alberta Hip and Knee Clinic. I remember one break in particular when Orland was giving me words of consolation about living with Alzheimer’s Disease and somehow we started laughing until tears ran down our faces – that’s Orland in a nut shell. He was a very gifted leader, nurse and person. He will not be forgotten. My best wishes and prayers for the whole Lehman family.
