Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
I was able to know Aron Froese (Opa) for 15 years, I will cherish the memories of going to Tim Hortons, watching Hockey, playing card games, going shopping for supper, or talking about crazy stories about his hilarious motorcycles incidents. I can't imagine what my next steps will be like, Opa was apart of me and I feel like there is a part of me that is empty during this time, while I try to recover and move on from his passing. He will be in my heart forever, and I will cherish those memories and regularly think about them when I walk into a Tim Hortons or watch a Winnipeg Jets game. Thank you, Opa. You being there for me meant a lot, especially now when I think about you during this time. Thank you Opa, god bless you. - Love Markus. - Posted by: Markus Penner (Grandson) on: Aug 03, 2020
