  1. Muriel Veldhoen :

    My sincerest condolences to the Shea families. I have known the Kindersley family all my life and started grade one at Mylrea School with Herb. My late husband, Murray knew Herb while working in the trailer business.
    May happy memories be with you all in this time of grief.

    I give you this one thought to keep__
    I am with you still__I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain,
    When you awken in the mornings hush,
    I am the swift uplifing rush
    of quite birds in circled flight,
    I am the soft stars that shine at night,
    Do not think of me as gone__
    I am with you still__in each new dawn.

    With Deepest Heartfelt Sympathy
    Love and Prayers.
