    I am very sorry for your loss. Death is our great enemy. However we can find hope and comfort in the words of John 5:28,29 when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…”

    Cynthia and I went to school in Regina from the RCMP barracks in the late 40’s. We later connected with our young families in 1967 in St Albert Ab. I have a letter from her dated way back in’89 that I neglected to answer. Life has a habit of getting too busy at times.
    My sincere condolences to Cam & family although it is over a year later. I will never be able to respond to her question “was Kent my son”? Yes,he is and he played in the NHL 12 yrs then Sweden Elite and Finland. Blessings Irene
