  • Good memories: St Paul's HS, Golf, Community Centres, River Heights, camping, Clear Lake, Donner's Lodge, Detroit Lakes, Zorbas, West Hawk Lake, Norwood, St Vital, fun with cars?, girls?, plus many other fun times. I was lucky to travel back to Winnipeg last year and spend time with Brian. Many many changer and poor health. We loved talking the old time when we were young. Brian did not respond to my messages as I think he was trying to stay positive in his difficult time. I know he is no longer suffering and is a better place.
