Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
My tribute to the best parents a girl could have. Went through more pictures and memories today. Boy do I have alot of pictures of us Lots of did you knows Dad's favorite food Chinese Mom's favorite food seafood until she got gout Dad spent more money than Mom Mom was an avid reader Dad and mom loved TV game shows Mom loved horses (she once was kissed by one of the musical rides horses at the stampede it tickled her pink) Mom loved figure skating and one year I got her signed autographs from Elvis Stojko and Barbra Ann Scott. Dad loves his fishing and hunting, but he loved spending time with family more.. Mom and Dad both loved music Yahoo Daddy! Mom loved all music and I got her a signed cd from George Canyon and told him all about her watching and cheering him on when he was on Nashville Star Mom met Julian Austin while we were getting gas and a few other country stars well visiting Calgary. Mom attended Big Valley a few times and saw Carrie Underwood, Brooks and Dunn, and many more acts We saw Reba, Tina turner and The Beach Boys together Mom once had dinner at a fine dining restaurant in down town Calgary. She could not understand why there were no prices on her menu and why there was 1 waiter assigned to our table only. If she knew her pork chops cost $78 she would have never eaten there. But she enjoyed trying new things. She loved trying new restaurants with me and new eating experiences (like the sushi we ate while sitting on the floor at a Japanese restaurant) They enjoyed subway, they would share a sub. Half cold cuts and tomatoes, lettuce for Dad and the other half cold cuts with the works for mom. Than there was the blueberry pancake breakfasts on Sundays, the late night grilled cheese sandwiches Dad would make and when he would add bologna we would laugh at the bowl of cheese on the bread and the meat rolled up on the edges. They both loved playing card games, crib and yatzee. Mom was an avid bowler (Roxy lanes) and was once on the TV game show bowling for dollars and for many years taught YBC bowling on Saturdays. She worked at the lanes for many years. Mom also works for Andy Kane auctions for many years, she enjoyed getting out after all us kids were gone or in school. She volunteered at the church, the school and Brownies. Mom never missed my ringette games even at 42 below. She collected salt and pepper shakers and had over 3500 sets . I would take her to the brown owl meeting 1 every month. Some in town and some in Souris, Holland and richer. She enjoyed getting together with those ladies and trading and buying new sets. Dad used to always say I am not knowing an inside joke with Bill. Mom always brought me 2 burgers from George's when she visited (which was usually annually) her suitcase smelt like chili and onions for weeks. I always ordered Niakwa pizza for us she liked that while we watched late night movies. Mom always had foot cream out for me when I got there, and before we went to bed she would say ok we better do your feet before bed.(she knew I was on them all day) Holidays were special and through the years I always tried to make sure moms yard was the most decorated for Halloween and Christmas. Mom loved Halloween and Dad Christmas. They both loved road trips We took 19 together (mom, dad, me and with Bill my husband) through the years, not including trips as a kid. Sometimes Bill would stay home and their adopted Daughter Sonja (my best friend) would go on the trip. The trip to Arkansas and Branson Missouri was a hoot, the 4 of us (mom, dad, me and bill)of went to silverdollar city, and got on a water ride. Not thinking we were all wearing jeans. Well , we were drenched, so when the guy went to let us off we looked at each other and said let's do it again. Than we went underground in the diamond cave and had dinner in a mine. All those wonderful trips Route 66 to see Cadillac Ranch California 3 times Las Vegas 5 times Montana 2 Thunderbay Duluth Wisconsin Saskatchewan multiple times Alberta multiple times Inverness BC Missouri Arkansas And more.. Mom and I did short ones and stopped at abandoned houses(another activity she loved) Mom's favorite show expedition unknown Mom's favorite flower morning glories and peony. Mom and Dad through the years gained several 4 legged grand babies that they loved being with. Dad loved going fishing with us, he was a wonderful teacher. I will never forget Dad taking my father in law out fishing. Bob was so happy Being the last sibling in the house, I heard and seen alot. Dad always knew more than he let on. He knew when people lied, but he always said they must have really have needed help and if he could he would and not hold a grudge. Mom and Dad both loved the cottage life and I have millions of memories there. Including when Zach our black lab cross ran after something at 2am and we all search gor her till 8am and found her running home down the highway. Dad always perked up when we called and when he visited. One summer he came and stayed for 5 months. I gave him a job doing some finishing on some homes. He was excited to be doing what he loved and the $40 an hour helped to. Calgary was mom's second home, she was here when we built our first home, she was here when we sold our first home, she was here when I had cancer twice, she was here 4 to 6 months each year. The time mom and Dad spent with us will be cherished , they were not just me parents but my best friends. All the good memories I have would fill this page to capacity. Dad and Mom please know you did nothing wrong, you brought us up the best you knew how. We all love you, spending all that time with you was a pleasure and I wish we had more time. Love you always and until we meet again Your kiddo - Posted by: Susan cordiner (Daughter) on: Jul 25, 2023
