Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I was so saddened to hear about Harold’s passing. He was a calm, understanding and gentle person who always made you feel welcome. I will fondly remember how he would tease us and how he always loved his family. It is so sad that we can’t all get together at this time to support each other. Our heartfelt condolences and prayers to Shawn, Trevor, Barb, Betty, Pete and families. Love you all. Terry. XO - Posted by: Terry Lamoureux (Niece) on: Dec 21, 2020

  • I’m very saddened to hear of Uncle Harolds death! I have many fond memories of this kind and gentle man! May he Rest In Peace now. My love, thoughts and prayers to Barb, his sons Shaun and Trevor and all family and friends who knew and loved him. ❤️ - Posted by: Kelly Thiessen (Niece) on: Dec 19, 2020

  • My condolences to you, Barb and family on the passing of Harold. My mom and dad, Dave & Olga Enns loved these nephews, Harold & Johnny & Pete Klassen, as if they were their own. Family visits, with you all on our farm in Selkirk as well as when mom & dad moved back to Winkler, MB made great memories for them. Dad (passed in 2005) and mom are together now as of June 24th 2020 when mom passed away of cancer and a crushed hip, in hospital & comfort care for 13 months. We talked many long hours of family and good times together and you all were part of those talks. With Covid we are all lost as we can’t get together as families to deal with the passing of our loved ones together. That is the worst part. God Bless you as you celebrate Harolds life during this time of loss and the Christmas season. Love and prayers from Gail, daughter of David & Olga Enns. - Posted by: Gail (Enns) Loewen (Cousin ) on: Dec 19, 2020
