  1. Sharon (Simle) & Don Williams & family; Moose Jaw, SK. :

    Our sincere sympathy on the loss of your dear Mom and Oma. My husband, our two sons, and I had the pleasure of meeting Bregje back at the Mulberry Estates, in Moose Jaw, SK., through my parents, Margaret & Roy Simle. My Dad enjoyed playing cards with Bregje and the group, and I will never forget how touched and overwhelmed she was the day we brought her my Mom’s lift- recliner chair, after my Mom passed in 2011. Her reaction touched my heart.
    Sincerely, Sharon (Simle) & Don Williams and Family, Moose Jaw, SK.

    We are so sorry to hear of your dear Mom’s passing and we will hope the warmth of all the wonderful memories that you hold close to your hearts will ease your loss and will keep on making you smile. Bregie was an amazing woman and such a great friend to all at the Mulberry in Moose Jaw but especially to my special Mom & Dad – Margaret & Roy Simle – I never missed a chance to see her and share a laugh when I visited from Atlanta. She loved life and she loved her family. Treasure her sweet memory and take good care of each other.
    Love & Hugs – Pat (Simle) Collins & Family

    Dear Liz, Wilma, Kelly and families,
    My sincerest sympathy in this time of sorrow.
    I have such good memories of all the times playing cards and games in Briercrest.
    The good meals shared with both your mom and dad and my parents.
    Your mom always made my son Robert his favorite salad, the one with the Marshmallows.
    We will miss them all allways because those were the good old day’s.
    I have one of your dad’s spinning wheels and a picture and tree ornaments made by your mom,
    so they will always be in my heart.
    My prayers are with you all, and know that she is now safe in the arms of Jesus.
    With my love
