Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • From Mac Franz and Family - We are saddened to hear the news of Jerry's passing. We have very fond memories of times spent with Jerry and Jeannette and their family; on the farm, in Gimli, at socials and family gatherings. We remember Jerry's love of life and sense of humour. We spent many social occasions catching up, sharing stories, and laughing together. His friendly personality and great sense of humour will be missed. Our families have been fractured during this time of Covid -19. We understand that we could not be there for a celebration of his life and to share our personal condolences directly, and support you in your time of grief. You are in our thoughts. We like to remember that the weight of our grief on our heart and our soul is proportionate to the love shared over a lifetime. Take good care. Mac Franz, Jean Franz, Kelly and Dennis, Donna and Frank, Bob and Brenda. - Posted by: Mac Franz and Family (Cousin ) on: May 20, 2021
