Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
Dear Elsie and Family, I'm so very sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to you all. Knowing you all as a teenager. It feels like I lost a family member. I was missing emails from Kenneth and you, so went to search the other one he used, then this. Elsie I pray for your health and comfort.

Dear Elsie - so sorry to read of the loss of Ken - we did have many good times together both in Scouting and square dancing. Thinking of you at this sad time. Though far away in Australia, I have not forgotten those of you back in Winnipeg. Take care and stay safe. Best regards, John - Posted by: John Weltevreden (friend) on: Jun 12, 2021
