    Dear Clint, Kathy and your extended families. We are saddened and send our deepest condolences in the loss of your dear father (our dear uncle Ed). Although we have not been in touch with you or your father over the years, I have very fond memories from childhood and young adulthood of his kindness and humour when visiting us in Vancouver or at family reunion events. His wit was extraordinary. Uncle Ed and Aunt Marie shared the bounty of their wonderful qualities with all of us.
    Our hearts and thoughts are with you.

    Dear Kathy, It is sad to lose a good, kind man like Ed. Our last meeting on stopover at Calgary airport when Ed took the time, and energy, to come to the airport where we had a good visit – and reminisced. Now both “the little boys” are gone, Cliff and Ed. Our dear ones.

    Dear Clint and Kathy,

    I am sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing and I am glad it was peaceful. He was a lovely, gentle, warm man just like our Dad Cliff. I remember with smiles long-ago the family times in Manitoba with you two. Jimmy and us four running around trying to be on our best behaviour around Grandma Regehr. I trust you find solace in your faith. Thinking of all of you, in peace.

    Beth

    I was so fortunate to have known both your Mom & Dad & yourselves & Jim. I remember my luck in being able to board at your home in Steinbach before you left for Calgary. We had alot of fun.
    Then visiting a number of times there.
