    Hi to all our Loril Bohne cousins,

    We are sorry for your loss and send our condolences. I have some fond memories of your mom and dad. The last lime I saw them was at the mall in Lethbridge. I had gone to the mall with mom and had by 3 oldest boys with me. I left Matthew to watch the other 2 boys in a waiting area, while I went to do some shopping with mom. We met your mom in the mall and when we were finished went back to the waiting area to get the boys. Matthew was quite upset when I got there and said that this man kept bothering them. I asked what man and he said that man over there. It was Uncle Loril. He was quite a tease and loved little kids.
    We wish you all the best and are sorry we were not able to be there for the memorial.
    May the Lord bless you.

    Blaine and Dianne

  3. Hello Bohne’s
    What memories came back when I saw your father’s obituary. Where has all the time gone. I am sure your dad is happy to be where your mother is. I have such happy memories of spending time in your home here in Glenwood. I guess I should have done a better job of keeping track of some of you. Good luck as you lay your father to rest and enjoy the happy memories you have of your parents. Too bad it takes an obituary to find out where some of you live. I would love to hear from some of you. Our email address is if you can find the time after this is over. Love Jolane Shipley (Lybbert)
