  • Anyone who dedicates their time and fills their "dash" with helping feed the less fortunate deserves recognition. I recall calling to volunteer and in some years, there were enough or too many volunteers. Too Many? yes I think because Winnipeggers knew the dedication Kai had and supported him in his cause. Knowing that he retired lately and is now crossing over will have this man in the community not only honouring him but missing him. - Posted by: Laurie Gyde (Canadian citizen) on: Oct 07, 2021

  • What a great man Kai was! I met him many many years ago through a friend and a couple of years after that I met him again and worked with him volunteering at Christmas Cheer Board. He always had a smile on his face and time for you or for anyone who approached him, didn`t matter how busy he was or what was on his mind at the time he always made the time to talk and reach out! His dedication to volunteering in his degree was truly a gift that only a few people have in this world. You will be missed dear sir and we will remember you fondly as we look back at the in peace your job on earth was well done! - Posted by: adele finch (acquaintance, friend, co-worker, admirer) on: Oct 07, 2021
