Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Dear Irma and family, I am sorry to hear of Harry's passing. You may not remember me, but you may remember Lilian and Julius Pelser from Winkler. In her memory box, she had a lovely Christmas card of you, Harry and David. Also a picture of the whole family on the occasion of your parents' wedding anniversary. I became the keeper of some of her pictures after her death. I often wondered where your family was and how you were doing. Here you were close, in Winnipeg. My sincere condolences to you. - Posted by: Milli Laing (Cousin) on: Oct 26, 2018
