Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. Dearest Brent, My heart goes out to you and your family. In reading the obituary of your beloved son, I was reminded that you have already bared the loss of a daughter. My heart dropped and I was compelled to write a brief condolence even though we do not formally know each other. We have, however, crossed paths around town; the last time being at the Western gas station on Prairie and Northern a few months ago.

    My name is Catherine Connor. I am a local fellow vocalist/musician and have had the opportunity to witness and enjoy your special talent many times over the years. I have great appreciation for your gift of voice, and although I do not know you or your family personally, I wanted to extend my deepest sorrow for your loss. As a parent, losing a child has been one of my greatest fears.

    I am a member of the Divine Science Church, and it is our belief that the thing referred to as death is but a transformation back to our true Spirit Self and our true Home (God). We believe that as we all are connected, those of the Earthly life and those of the Spirit Life, we are never truly separated and have our loved ones’ spirits still with us although their Earthly body no longer is.

    I pray that you and your loved ones find all the comfort you need in God and in the closeness of your family and friends during this time of mourning. I send the healing light of God’s love to you all.

  2. Dear Shirley, Brent and families,
    I am so sorry to hear about Samuel. Please know that many are praying for you and you family.
    Jeanette

  4. Dear Brent and family, I was shocked and saddened to hear about your son. My thoughts are with you.
    Your friend,
    Paula Demchuk (Santarelli)
