Our heartfelt condolences to the family. It was sad to find out that another elder had passed and one so respected in saddle lake. May he rest in eternal peace.

From: Cliff & Natalie
Relation: Uncle

Our community has been robbed of such a kind loving and respected ELDER. So full of humbleness and humility both him and his wife. Our hearts are full of sadness and our wish is that the Creator wrap his blanket around the whole family during this difficult time. We love you all more than you know. Clifford Natalie & Family
