  • Our condolences to the family of Meredith. My dad Don Robson would trade Navy stories at church (John Black). May they both rest in peace . - Posted by: Laurel Curry (member of John Black Memorial United Church) on: Feb 16, 2016

  • I had the privilege of working with Meredith at Manitoba Pool. He was a loyal and respected employee and was a character to say the least, with a sharp wit and was never caught without an answer to any question or comment. My in laws lived in Rossburn at one time and Meredith never failed to ask about them and how they were doing. Our sympathies go out to Sylvia and Meredith's family.
