Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I've lost a great friend.RIP - Posted by: Kris Peterson (friend) on: May 05, 2020

  • Kristjan lived with us for awhile in Keewatin Ontario, when he first left the farm, back in the 60's. We knew each other from being on our family farms in Hayland Manitoba. I recall St.Janny at the Hayland Picnic, with his prized golden 57 Plymouth Belvedere with the big tail fins; as was common then, a mickey was pulled from under the front seat, for a social drink. That was one of the many enjoyable times shared in the company of Kristjan. In later years, an encounter with Kristjan was always cherished for the warmth of his spirit. I will miss those visits, may he rest in peace. - Posted by: Jack Williams (old friend) on: Apr 21, 2020
