Some families also at- raspy-voiced, friendly greeting when I would perchance meet you at the Morrin food store. And mostly, I will miss watching you open your garage door, which is directly across from my front window. Almost every morning of every day for these past 10 years, after getting my daughter Charly off to school, I have noticed as you would drive out to get the mail and drive back. I daresay, I will never look outside my front window and not think of you... funny how those little things come to mean so much.
There will be a memorial service for Al Bremer on Saturday, May 20 at 2:00 p.m. at the Morrin Community Hall. tended the 4-H Night at the Calgary Flames on March 31.
