  • Raymond Stroman says:

    Aunt Catherine and cousins, so sorry Uncle Kenny is no longer with us. Trish and I are planning on coming to the funeral. Will see you then.

    Dearest Catherine and Family, with sincere sympathy, love and prayers for Ken and you all. May our Blessed Lord hold Ken in His arms. He will always be near and dear to our hearts. May your sorrow today become happy memories tomorrow, Love Ray and Sylvia

  • Joan Willis (McCargar) says:

    Dear Catherine, Although we haven’t spoken for just about 50 years, I never forgot working on the farm with you when I was 16 years old. It was a life changing experience and you and Ken were often in my mind. I still tell stories about how hard I worked when I was young. My prayers are with you and the family at this time. Forever remembered.

  • Deb Stroman Black says:

    Dear Aunt Catherine and family,
    You will never know what an important and influential part of my life you and Uncle Ken played. I am so sad that I only just heard that Uncle Ken was ill, I never had a chance to tell him how important he was to me and how much his phone call meant to me when Jim passed away. There were no flights available out of Palm Springs this week or I would be with you. Much love to you all, my heart will be there with you on Friday

  • Carla Miner says:

    Dear Aunt Catherine and cousins – my deepest sympathies to all of you. I remember Uncle Ken as a happy, fun loving man and I always enjoyed our family times together. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, and Uncle Ken will be held close in my heart now and forever.

  • Derek, Donna, Kyla and Beth Gilchrist (Mirtle) says:

    Our hearts are heavy with sorry for your entire family on the loss of Ken. He has taken the journey to Heaven ahead of you. His pain is no more and he is walking with The Lord with a smile and in His Peace. And one day, when The Lord says it is time, you will see Ken again and you will also be smiling and in the Lord’s Peace. Know you are all in our hearts and prayers in the days and weeks to come. Sincerely, Janet’s (Pat) sister and family, Donna (Camrose, AB).
