Obituary, viewing, and thanks

Just a few things we'd like to let you all know about:

  • Kol's obituary appeared in the Saskatoon Star Phoenix Thursday morning - I'm not sure if it will appear in the Friday edition as well, but it can be viewed online as well.
  • There will be a viewing and short prayer service on Saturday at 11:00am at the church, for family and for anyone who would like to attend. The casket will remain open until shortly before the funeral service begins at 2:00pm.
  • If you need a place to stay in Outlook, a number of people have offered their homes - please let us know and we'll help you find a bed.
  • If you don't know how to get to the church, please be aware that Google Maps shows it in the wrong spot - it should be at the corner of Ash Street and 4th Avenue, further north than where Google puts it.
Thank you all so much for your comments, emails, cards, letters, flowers, food, phone calls, hugs, and prayers. As sad as we are to be separated from Kol, we are so glad to be part of such a caring and loving community - not only our local community here in Outlook, but all our friends, family, and supporters throughout the province, across Canada and the USA, and around the world. We are blessed by you. Thank you again so very much.

    Kirk, Kristen and families. I have not written as I have not known what to say. Truly, there are no words. Please know that you continue to be in our thoughts and our daily prayers. We are unable to be with you tomorrow but we will definately be sharing in your sorrow and rejoicing in the celebration of Kol's life. May you find peace in the days ahead.

  2. Precious Friggstad family - of course there are no words I could say that will express my grief for your loss - all I can say is may God carry you all right now... "Footprints in the Sand." Love the Bird family (Carol, Matt, Taylor, Eliana, Raphael, Remiel, Gabrielle).
