A tribute to Abe Okpik
I just want to say what a sad loss it is to lose our most respected friend,Abe Okpik.
He was a very good man. He was never shy, and always cared. We (the people of Nunavut) were very fortunate to have such a kind person amongst us. Our hearts go out to the family.
I have known Abe all of my life. When he would visit or if our families went for an outing, there was never a dull moment.
As anyone who had the pleasure to know, Abe would agree. He was the type of person that everyone who would talk to him wished they had a tape recorder along to record all the wonderful exciting stories.
Abe will always be in our hearts and in our souls. Our condolences to the family.
