Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Jenna - my deepest sympathies on the loss of your father. It's so great that he got to see your baby! I hope that brings you some peace. Take care. - Posted by: Jo-Anne (co-worker) on: May 18, 2020

  • Russel was a friend to many and a practical joker as many will recall. I loved him like a brother even though we have been estranged for quite a while. We shared many years together and I will miss him even more now. He will always be close to my heart and in my memories. He fought the good fight for a long time, now he can rest with his loved ones who went before him. Goodbye Old Friend, Love You - Posted by: Dan Loewen (EX-Brother-In-Law and friend) on: May 17, 2020
