I have many fond memories of our school years in Shaunavon. Please accept my heartfelt condolences in the sudden loss of your loved one.

    Mom and I just found out, and send our deepest regrets. I remember Annetta bought 2 computers from me, in my deepest hours of need, she was ever thoughtful, and most kind. Giving my mom a ride to Calgary and back to Medicine Hat, with me, on extremely short notice. If there is ever anything we can do for you, don't hesitate to ask. With deepest sympathy, Billy Jussila Martha Jussila

    Robert and family...we were so sorry to hear of your loss. Our 6 years in Thompson were coming to an end when your family arrived, but I did enjoy a few visits with Annetta and those 3 beautiful children. Our Class of '65 has lost a dear classmate, far too soon.
