Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Kelli and Neil, I always was happy to see Jo-Anne at River East Kodiaks hockey games. I did not know many parents so was always to see her face and sit with her to watch games. Was sad when Kelli graduated and did not see her much again except for once when she came to watch the upcoming girls games. She was a wonderful person and wish i could have seen her more besides games. Who would have known life could turn out this way as for me to regret not having Pursued more of her Fun company. Best to Kelli in your future career endeavours from Callie Hislop and I. Same to you Neil as you go forth In life without your wonderful sidekick.
