Pat & Norm Bell:
Our most sincere condolences to all the family members at this time. Those we lose are never truly gone, they live forever in our hearts and memories.
Jodi and Family I am sorry to hear about the loss of your father. Hold dear the memories
of your dad. This will keep him close to you.
Stew&Jean Stephanson :
Our condolences to all the family of Fred Kraychy.
As next door neighbors over four years ( 72-75 ) we
knew the family well in that era. It was only a few months back I had a lengthy talk with Fred in a community grocery store, and we “relived” a few old memories. He expressed being so grateful for having his family so close and so helpful at this time in his life. Take strength from the memory of your father and your mother Bev.
