Dear Marcel and Norah and Kaitlyn and Alyssa,
We were very sorry to hear about your dad and Opa.
There is no doubt, that he considered himself very blessed, to have had so much quality time with his whole family. He was a good neighbour and friend to many.
Our sincere condolences.
Jim and Helen.
May G’d bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.*
Our heartfelt condolences Marcel and Ken and families at the passing of your dad and grandpa, our ome Hans. We will miss him and his unexpected visits to Eastern Ontario. We will watch the service online today. May all you are in need of be provided.
Dear Marcel and Nora. Ken and Anne and families
.So sorry to hear of the passing away of your Dad and Opa. We lost contact with you all when we all moved away from Lynden.
Your Dad spoke always so highly of your children and loved you and the grandchildren so much.
We are just back from Florida and were unable to come to the visitation or Church service. Our condolences to you all and may the Lord comfort you
Your former neighbours Syd and Joanne.
