To Rick, Sharilyn & Family
My sympathy on the passing of your mother and grandmother. Although I didn't know her I well remember your family from our McClure United Church and UofS connections when you lived in Saskatoon. Look to your memories for comfort, your friends for understanding and your faith for hope and peace.

Dear Peggy, Rick and family,

We were very sorry to read that Barb, your dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, had passed. We hope she and Gerry are again traveling together - no free passes needed - in a world of their own eternal happiness.

Deepest condolences,
Siegfried and Elfriede
