Sending my sincere condolences on the loss of a husband and father

So very sorry to hear about your loss. We have never met due to covid. When you moved into the neighbourhood we wanted to come welcome you but with covid we kinda held back. Now I regret that choice. Once again, I am so so sorry to hear about your loss.
Our prayers are with you to have strength in these times for you and your children.

Dearest Meagan and family,
I am still in shock of the news. I have never met Kurtis, but working with you and seeing your children in the store over the last year did show me the type of person he was.
Take care of yourself - you are surrounded with many family members and good friends who want to help you.
Again, my deepest sympathy.

— Linda Devlin, March 13, 2022

Dear Meegan; I am not sure if I have the correct Meegan. If you were and and are a Registered Nurse at Royal Terrace in Palmerston, we met when Velda Francis was so very ill and you were an awesome Nurse to our dear friend. If I don't have the correct Meegan, I still send my condolence to you, on the death of your husband. To serve for our country like he did was an outstanding thing to do. Our Lord above will grant him peace and I wish all of you happy memories as you cope day by day with his loss. Life just doesn't seem fair and is very difficult to understand. Sincere Heartfelt Sympathy, Mary McIntee, Mount Forest.
