My deepest condolences for Shandees family. Shandee was my best childhood friend. We met when we were six years old in Thompson Manitoba. We both attended Westwood elementary school. We were always together having fun and causing trouble. Our family moved to Winnipeg in 1974. Years later in 2018 we were in contact again. Unfortunately Shandee was not well at times. Well my friend may you rest in peace.
Goodbye my cherished friend, I am glad we were able to connect via telephone during Covid. I often thought of you and the times we spent together, remembering you with much fondness. I am sure your many family ties and those close to you have benefitted from your presence as have I. In time, I hope the pain of their loss is shadowed by the memories of the good times they shared with you. In spirit.
