My deepest condolences to the Angliker family on the passing of Colin. I only learned of the sad news yesterday. I remember Colin fondly from the times our families spent together in Montreal and Metis years ago. He had such a great sense of humor and was a very caring person. He will be greatly missed.

Dr. Angliker brought light to those walking in the darkness of mental illness. Now, he walks in the light. He is and will always be my hero. I was blessed to have known and worked with him. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Sarah and his family. May God comfort you during this difficult time.

I was so very sorry to learn of your loss. Dr. Angliker was truly one of a kind.! I enjoyed working with him.. He was always pleasant, professional and complimentary when he thought you had done a good job.. I remember that I had several monthly reports to do for Central Office and I always sent him copies of them, he never failed to thank me. If I encountered a problem or had a question I always felt comfortable in talking with him. Confidentially that you seldom experience in the work place. I always enjoyed the letters at Christmas and I will really miss them He could sum up a year better than anyone I have know! He was a joy to work with, and I will always remember him as, not only a co-worker, but a true friend. My love to all the family, Edna Pennington

Served with Colin on The Belfast Medical Students Association in the 50's. Loved meeting with you both in Wytheville on the way south. Enjoyed your company and hospitality a lot. Colin was a gentleman and a scholar--he will be missed. Our condolences. John and Elaine McCurdy, Brampton Ont. Canada.

Sarah, this is Deb, Patsy's daughter, I am so very sorry for your loss of your husband as well as for your daddy. I think I only met Colin one time but he was so nice and Mr. Nash was also such a nice man and treated us all so well. I am thinking about and praying for you and Emily and the entire family, Sincerely, Deb and Bill Stowers and Family.

On behalf of the Southwest Virginia Medical Reserve Corps, we want to wish you our deepest sympathy. Dr. Angliker was one of the very first members to join and complete volunteer orientation for the Medical Reserve Corps in the fall of 2004. He was a supportive volunteer and always responsive. We will certainly miss his membership and knowledge.
