  1. Carmen Neufeld (Nedohin) :

    Dear Lloyd, Alana and families. You might not remember the name but I am the daughter of Peter and Teena Nedohin. It was only about a week ago when I wondered how your Mother was and if she was still in Winnipeg. I remember visits to your home when I was a child and will never forget how those Christmas presents were wrapped. I honestly don’t remember a time when your Mum wasn’t smiling and she was a good friend to my Mum when my Dad died. I see that donations are going to the Alzheimer Society and, if your Mum was stricken, I know that the peace she now finds herself in is a much better place. My thoughts and sympathies are with all of you. Carmen

    Dear Lloyd, Alana and Families.

    I read the obituary notice in the Calgary Herald and would like to express my sincerest condolences on the loss of your mother. May she now be at peace.

    My mother now almost 98 and residing in a personal care facility in Winnipeg has dementia. She does not talk nor recognize my brother Gordon who visits her regularly.

    Alana, if you would like to contact me, I can be reached at 403-247-5250.

    My thoughts are with you.
