Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • My favourite memory of Chris is when he took my fishing in Jackfish Creek, near Balmoral. We were likely around 12 or 13 years old and I had never been fishing before. He brought pole and tackle, cast iron frypan, butter and matches. We (Chris actually) caught a fish. He cooked it whole, over an open fire on the bank of the creek...another new experience for me. I don't remember how we ate it...but I remember that it was the best-tasting fish ever!! Chris was always so good to me. I know we had many adventures...but that is the one that sticks in my mind clearly today. - Posted by: Barb Melnychuk (Friend and schoolmate) on: Dec 29, 2021
