Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • My sincere condolences to Thomas's family. Thomas was too young. I knew Thomas for many years from the Manitoba Club and would see him a 529 as well. He was such a cheerful, pleasant and friendly man. He knew all the MB Club members by name and made you feel welcome anytime you went there. He always greeted you with a smile and looked after us very well. He was one of those people you don't really know very well, but they still feel like a good friend. We will miss him. - Posted by: Hal Ryckman (Customer) on: May 26, 2021
