    So sorry to hear of Blaine’s passing. I always enjoyed talking to Blaine and listening to his stories on our visits to Calgary for the rodeo or when I was there on business. I know over the years he has been in so much pain and endured many hardships, may he finally be at peace and painfree. Condolences to Blaine’s family and close friends, it’s always hard to say goodbye to those we love, but we’ll always remember him fondly for his big heart and fighting spirit.

    Blaine was like a brother to me & amp;great friend. When he didn’t have a date or I didn’t we went together, as friends. I even had to drive sometimes, with no license (oh well). Blaine always had a smile on his face and never complained about anything. I will miss that for sure.
    Love Always, Giselle

    Cousin Blaine, words cannot express the sadness I feel. You were always the hi-light of any of my Calgary trips. You were “THE ONE” to see FIRST, and the last one to say goodbye to. Miss you. Condolences to Auntie Florence and family. See you all soon.

    Dear Kereluk Family,

    Please accept my sincere condolences about Blaine’s passing. This news came as quite a shock to me.

    Blaine was my deceased brother’s best friend a long time ago (Keith Webster). Keith, Blaine and I had many adventures as young people. I moved to Rocky Mountain House fifteen years ago and probably hadn’t seen Blaine for over twenty years. He was a fun loving guy and like a little brother to me.

    I only wish now that I had kept in touch with him more often. A person only realizes this when it’s too late.

    I am very sorry for your loss.

    And now I’m glad I didn’t know
    The way it all would end the way it all would go
    Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
    But I’d of had to miss the dance

    Blaine – Thank you for the Dance, thank you for accepting us into your life, and into your families lives. In the fifteen years I have known you and Guys fortyone, your kindness, hospitality and exuberance for life have always remained evident. Guy and I are so glad you shared that day with us 13 years ago, we only wish you could have stood with us again on June 4th.

    We know you will always be looking down at us and all the fun times we had together with you will remain locked in our memories always. Halloween will not be the same without you and your crazy costumes.

    Our loss but Heavens gain, farewell to thee.
    Leigh and Guy Anderson
