Dear Family, We were very sad to hear of your mother's passing. You are in our thoughts. Special word out to Don and Bonnie: I have really good memories of spending much time at your home in Cypress River. Your Mom and Dad were always completely welcoming of having 'the boys' over. Great hockey parents and wonderful bus drivers throughout the years. Take care Don. I know you carry that happy spirit that your parents instilled in you from an early age. To all the boys, know that even if we are separated by distance, one never forgets the friendships forged during our school years together. Our deepest sympathy to you all.
Ed and Shelley Robidoux

Dear Nash Family,

Our deepest sympathies and condolences on the passing of your mom. She was certainly a surrogate mother to us growing up. She helped our mom gain the skills in potty training Kyle and I when we were around 2 years old. I will always owe your mom for giving me the skills to not pee my pants in front of others!
The passing of your dad, our dad and now your mom, left & leaves big voids in all of our lives. The stories we could tell, but probably not for today… The crawl space off the kitchen, the Tarantula, sleeping under the front of the “red boat”, fishing and of course much laughter.
Your family has been linked to ours for longer than we can remember. Except for Doug maybe… Your mom and our mom became friends walking babies down the streets of Cypress River. Our dad’s had similarities in the oil/gas industry. It seems our fates were sealed many years ago and we would always be connected. When Dean showed up it was definitely a change. What the heck, we were looking at Tarantula’s, wild game in the garage and then a baby showed up!
The finality of life is never easy, and one prefers to remember the days before. So many stories. You were almost late for your flights after our dad’s funeral. Although that was because Don and David wanted to meet up for a beer first. Bonnie of course was totally innocent… and Doug was there as well and will remember! We will choose to remember your mom as we knew her. A wonderful person who would have done anything for us.
It is our deepest regret that we cannot make it to show our respect for your mom and your family. We are scattered across North America, and it is clear Mother Nature does not concern itself with what others think at times like this. We were steadfast in making the trip, but the weather is just not cooperating, and your mom would likely tell us we were stupid for making the effort if it presented risk. You all have our most heartfelt sympathies and we wish you all the very best in the coming days.

Most Sincerely,

The Dreger Family
