    Donna, Jan, Ed, And Doug’
    Your Dad was one great guy and we will all miss him very much. Cecil was a true Western Canadian and it was an honour to have him as a father-in-law. He had his “head screwed on right”, as they say. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. Stay strong and let us know of anything we can do.
    At least we now know there’s a much better horseshoe team playing for Heaven!!!
    With love,

    Ed, Donna, Jan, Doug and family,
    My thoughts are with you at this time. I have just returned home to find the news of your farther’s passing.
    Cec was a true and great freind to my father Ron. I would remember them going out fishing, bowling, berry picking, going to may communty association meetings when they were young, always up for outings to Spruce Meadows, sight seeing and horseshoes. I will always remember playing cards with Cec and Lou at their favorite campsite – Carsland. Your father was so thoughtful, when may father was ill, he would come over and make sure to fill the wood box up, cut and hall trees around the acerage, help bring groceries in and just come for a visit. After my fathers passing, your dad would phone my step-mother to make sure she was fine. Always helping others.
    Your father was a kind, gentle and caring man. I will miss him.
    Debbie & Bruce Remenda-Kennedy
