Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
I enjoyed our talks. I am glad that you liked the Canada Post hats I sent and you were so proud to wear them. I did recollect seeing the parades with the marching bands followed by the yearly trip to the Exhibition at the stadium. I reveled in the time we had reminiscing about our road trips, fishing trips, back country travels in now what is Nopiming Park. I fondly remember the vacations to Red Lake and Bissett. All the day trips rockhounding at abandoned quarries. The excursions that we took part in, to go berry and mushroom picking each summer. The Postie picnics at Selkirk Park brought back fond memories of our annual ritual where we got reacquainted with your coworkers and my young friends that I had not seen in a year. Yes I still remember the black bear at Kingston Lake that came down to the water while we where fishing. I am sorry that you were not able to talk on that Tuesday, like we had planned. I was so looking forward to it. You can rest now and forever. Love your son Terry. - Posted by: Terry Sawchuk (Son) on: Apr 17, 2021
For the past ten years, I have been talking to you almost every night. I am grateful for the time we were able to get reacquainted and I will cherish those memories. They were a gift, now I will not have you to talk to anymore. Sleep now forever in peace. One day we will meet again. Love from your daughter Rosemarie - Posted by: Rosemarie Sawchuk (Daughter) on: Apr 17, 2021
