Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. We always enjoyed seeing you with her when we visited Bernie's mom at Stony Plains. Take care! - Posted by: Florence and Bernie (friends) on: Sep 02, 2013
Dear Sandi and Family, Your mother's, grandmother's, great-grandmother's, great-great-grandmother's soul has journeyed on, but not before touching many lives. Among her various attributes, she will be remembered for her kindness to others (even to my brother, Al, as a young paperboy) & her compassion to others which I witnessed as a life lesson as a child; her love of family & her ability to make fast friends, even into her nineties. You were so lucky to have had her in your lives for so long. We, too, will miss her, but just as you will, we will also have those feel good memories of her to cherish. Love, John & Gina (Schiller) Klassen - Posted by: Gina (Schiller) Klassen ( family friend) on: Sep 01, 2013
