Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Our condolences to the John Froese family. My immediate first memory was of your Dad's leadership in the church, and the passion for others to know our Lord. The times of gathering around the dinner table (your mom made the best chicken soup). The friendship and encouragement that they were to our family and the community of Elm Creek. God's richest blessing upon you all as you honour the memory of your Dad. Norman and Heather - Posted by: Norman and Heather (Neighbour and friend ) on: Nov 04, 2021

  • So sorry to hear of John's passing, he was a Great friend of my parents Arnold & Lucille Middleton. They lived at Meadowood Estates in Carman when John & Elsie were there. I kept in contact with him after my dad passed. He was such a kind & gentle man. Rest in Peace John!! - Posted by: Ellen & Luc Gaultier (Friend - John knew my parents Arnold & Lucille Middleton) on: Nov 03, 2021
