  • To my forever friend Tammy and her sister Jeanette and brother Clark; so sorry to hear that Ross has passed away. My condolences and sympathies to you all. He came to the Yukon many years ago and met up with me and my family, which I will hold dear to my heart. He always had a smile and kind word for everyone. He was a dear soul. RIP. - Posted by: Lucy Skuba (friend) on: Jan 18, 2016

  • Jeannette, Tammy and Clark sorry to hear about your dad’s passing; I’m sure Walter and Nellie were there to meet him. Walter with the crib board and cards hoping to win some money from Ross; I can still hear them laughing especially when one skunked the other in crib. You’re in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs to all. - Posted by: Debbie Wowchuk (Family friend) on: Jan 16, 2016
