Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I guess when you're from Laurier and you're the same age, memories and stories go way back. I know that Pat was a respected teacher involved in his association . I also know that he had many friends from way back, like me. I offer my sincere sympathy. I will make a donation to CancerCare in his name. - Posted by: Priscille (Lapointe) Poirier (friend from Laurier) on: May 20, 2019

  • It was such a honour to have met Pat and Ann at a family reunion and in Kenora a couple of times. I wish I could have gotten to know you better because I thought you were the nicest couple I have ever met. My thoughts and prayer are with you Ann and your family at this difficult time - Posted by: Lorraine Letain (Friend ) on: May 18, 2019
