One Condolence for “WINONA HANOVER”

  1. Kevin Rittinger says:

    Dear Maureen, Rick and families,
    Thinking of you at this difficult time on the loss of a wonderful woman your mother.

    Getting to know your mom the years in Swift Current, being friends with Maureen and growing up on the North hill bring back lots of memories.

    Later in life, I moved to Medicine Hat and again had many good conversations with your parents. Your mom always had time to talk with me.

    My deepest condolences on your loss.
