  • I have always enjoyed knowing your family. I grew up with your family and I am saddened by your loss as your mother who was so kind. Be well Roy and Malveen as I know that this is a difficult time for you. I lost my mom over a year ago and it is the hardest thing for me to get over. Be well and be blessed. - Posted by: James McCullough (acquaintance) on: Mar 06, 2021

  • I remember visiting the McGuckins as a kid. My parents, Peter and Violet Dyck were also mink ranchers in Springfield, Manitoba. I remember them as being a very welcoming family along with a great sense of humour. When I see Amber on television I always wonder if she is from that family. Now I know and I’m very sorry for your loss of Ruby, Malcolm and Belle. . - Posted by: Marlene Dyck (Acquaintance long ago) on: Mar 06, 2021
