Aunt Harriet, Stuart, Linda and Barb:
I am so sorry for the loss of Uncle Bill. May your memories of him help you through this very sad, difficult time. I will miss running into him at Costco or WalMart and going down memory lane with him as well as his jokes. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Irene Rempel and family
Mrs. Rempel, Stuart, Barb and Linda,
It has been a long time since we have seen each other, but I saw Mr. Rempel’s obituary in The Taber Times. Please accept my condolences upon your loss of husband and father. It is a tough loss to deal with. I pray that God will give strength as needed through the days to come. God Bless.
