my deepest condolences to the keehn family. I’m happy that Justin was apart of the g-pops team and that he was able to be a huge support to the kitchen staff. without his hard work and dedication we would not have made it as far as we did. may good things come to the future of the keehn family.
I was saddened when I heard of dear Karen’s passing.
I was born and raised in Salmon Arm B.C., and my Mom was a dear friend of Karen’s.I have fond memories of the years she worked at Shuswap Clothing Company. She was always upbeat and smiling.
She will be missed dearly.
We were sorry to hear of our half sister Karen’s passing.
Karen found this branch of her family late in life and was welcomed by us. Although we were never able to spend much time together, we did stay in touch and we will miss her chatty emails about her life and family.
Karen was our half sister and we found each other late in life,
it was a pleasure to have known her.
I still find it difficult to know I will never converse with Karen again. She was a real lady in every sense of the word. I had the privilege of working along side her for a few years and the highlight was when she found her family! I’m going to miss her so much. I’m thinking of the family all the time and I hope Tweety is kept safe. She loved the little scarf and touque that was made by my mother-in-law. We have an angel amongst us ❤️
