Condolence from irene manderville on September 4th, 2013 7:59 PM

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
