    I’m so sorry for your loss. Mrs. K was a wonderful, beautiful and kind woman. She always made me feel so very comfortable at the Klassen house. May God keep her in His arms.

  • Shirley Byer-Curtis says:

    I will always remember Iris’ great sense of humour. We shared a lot of good times when I lived in Saskatoon. I really enjoyed our last visit, and I’m sorry we didn’t get to see her again. My thoughts and prayers are with all the family. Love, Shirley
