Dear Family, Thinking of all of you on the loss of your husband, father, grandfather. Treasure all the memories - they are so precious. Share them with each other. I worked at the Credit Union in Glenboro for a couple of summers while still in school. Barry was the Manager. I remember going to Swan River (I think) for a Credit Union bonspiel with Barry - don't remember how we did curling but I do remember playing pool on a huge table. Special memories. Hugs Rick, Sue (nee Dowd), Brent, Krista & Henry.
