Condolence from Heather Fryer on October 17th, 2019 9:30 pm

Dear Jim & Family, our sincere sympathies on the passing of a great lady of wonderful character. Millie is a cousin of my (now deceased) father, Earl Robinson and they were friends as well as cousins growing up in Carman, Manitoba. We enjoyed a couple of lovely visits at Jim and Millie’s home on the Lake, where we met Ian and Vickie and Millie and I had a few pleasant telephone visits. She was always delighted to hear news of family and I could hear the smile in her voice as she would chuckle during our conversations. May you all be comforted by your beautiful memories and God’s blessings of Peace. Heather (Robinson) & Dwight Fryer

Condolence from David Katherine Kostynyk on October 22nd, 2019 12:58 pm

Our Deepest and Heartfelt Condolences to your entire family
