Condolences

Chere Wiggins:
I am deeply sorry for your loss Rhonda, Deb, Randy, Reg and family. I will also remember Barb very fondly as a young teen, she took me into her own home and allowed me to be part of the family. I am the better for knowing her.
Rhonda Hamilton McPhail:
I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I have very fond memories of my time spent with Barb. Most of all I remember her laugh and we had many of those! You were all our favorite neighbors ever. Sadly, time changes and continues to tic by. Our parents leave us too soon, one way or another. We are left with our memories and the lessons taught us. I send my love to all of you.
Dawn & Donn Mason:
Thinking of you all at this difficult time; Sincerely, Dawn and Donn
Suzy & Roy Harder:
I loved working at the flower shop with your mom, all the good old fashion jokes and pranks were hilarious, especially when sales people thought I was her daughter:)))) I can still make a beautiful bow. I also loved going over to the house and making Christmas chocolates, painting the moulds, filling them with goodies... so glad that Chris follows in his grandmas footsteps with that tradition. I laugh when I remember the frank, outrageous stuff that came out of her mouth, that type of raw honesty has almost disappeared... although I wonder if she taught me that too?
I am deeply sorry for your loss! I truly believe that she lives on in each and every person she connected with through her lessons in life that she taught us. I hope that you find some comfort in knowing that she will always be with you in spirit as a guardian angle.
Kevin & Rhonda Wirda:
So sorry for your loss Reg, Deb, Rhonda, Randy and families.
Jackie Freigang :
So very sorry I,ll always remember your Mom fondly. My prayers are with you and your family. Remember she will always be watching over you .You now have your own Guardian Angel.
