With Deepest Sympathy to the family of Edgar...I have great memories of our daily visits at guest services in the mall, he would stop daily for a visit, pull a few treasured stones he had found on his walk over, “Which are your favourites?”...”Oh this one looks like a heart”....by the time our visit ended he had given me all the stones, in exchange I would give him a few mini chocolate bars for his walk home. I accumulated quite a collection over the years and have since covered a birdhouse with them, they were gathered with such care that I felt I needed to do something with these special stones. A prince of a man...A delight of having the pleasure of meeting and getting to know him...Rest in Peace Edgar

Gerald, Howard, Neil, Donna, Randy, Robert and Wayne,
Our sympathies over the loss of your dad. Whenever we'd meet in the mall in Medicine Hat, he'd want to take time to chat. Because we were related he seemed to feel that connection, that we were "frinde-shuft". And he was the same with Bev as he considered her family, too.
Hopefully your happy memories will help at this time.

Gerald, Howard, Niel, Donna, Randy, Robert, Wayne and all other family members, our sincere condolences to all of you. I have memories of your dad and his wanting to visit all the way back to our school years (Donna & Niel) but some I have enjoyed the most were when we'd regularly run into him at the mall and he'd ask questions about us and about Richmound. May he rest in peace, united again with your mom, Clara.
