Cards of Thanks
THANK YOU! The Jacobs family, Donna, Terine,  Derek, Penny and Scotte, would like to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for all the love and support we received after John (Jake) was suddenly taken from us.  We do truly live in a very caring community.  So many people to thank.  Jamie Devnich – thank you for getting John to the hospital as quick as you did and being such a great friend.  Dr. Drummond and the emergency staff at the Stettler Hospital for taking such great care in getting him ready for his ambulance ride to Calgary.  The EMT’s for safely delivering him to the Foothills hospital – a big thank you (and thank you for not letting him drive the ambulance as he had asked).  Our heartfelt thanks to the Doctors and staff at the Foothills Cardiac Care unit. We know he received the best care and there was nothing else that could have been done. Upon arriving home from Calgary we found the grass had been mowed – a big thank you to Matt and John from Peavey for doing this.   Calvin Blauel, we are so grateful to you for being there again for us. We truly appreciate everything you do as a professional and a good friend.  You and the rest of the Stettler Funeral Home staff helped take the stress out of the decisions that had to be made.  John’s nephews, Bill and Kelly Zwicker – thank you for stepping up and leading Jake’s Celebration of Life.  Thank you to Steven Keeley for giving the tribute and sharing some of John’s antics.  For all the “Jake stories” – thank you to my brother Tim Hansen, Bob Gallagher, Al Evans, Jamie Devnich, Mole Parsons, Doug Anderson and Calvin Blauel. We appreciate the laughs you all gave us. To my sister Carol and my friend June Evans – thank you for your words of prayer and inspiration.  To the many referees that arrived wearing their stripes, and the golfers their golf shirts, a big thank you. We appreciate everyone of you. Thank you to everyone who attended John’s celebration – in the words of Curtis Nichols “ Jake couldn’t have asked for a better celebration, the length of it was even perfect as it was the length of a typical hockey game” and the stands were full. Thank you also to Jeannie Wright for providing the lunch. To the staff at the Rec Center – our sincere thank you for your generous gift of the use of the Arena. A perfect location as John loved spending time there.  To our awesome families, friends, neighbors, co-workers, thank you for all the support you gave us and continue to give.  The visits, phone calls, text messages, the food, the flowers and the hugs. We continue to be truly blessed to have so many loving and caring people around us.
THE FAMILY of Nellie (Chinn) Rider would like to thank the many people who have supported us during this loss: the EMT’s, RCMP Officers, Victim Services, and the Stettler Funeral Home for their professionalism and compassion; neighbours and friends for the visits, memorial donations, flowers and meals prepared for us; our family’s respective employers and co-workers for their understanding and support. Nana was her grandchildrens’ biggest cheerleader and we sincerely appreciate those who reached out to them during this difficult time, including Mary Ellen Chapman and Sarah Tucker locally. We are so grateful for Corinne Nattestad and Verna Rock of the Stettler Funeral Home who helped us negotiate through all of our thoughts and feelings to put together a send off that truly represented Nellie.  The flower arrangements from Vintage Thistle were simply beautiful. Finally, thank you to Teresa’s Catering – your luncheon was exactly Nellie’s style! Sincerely Oris Rider; Karen, Red Sorensen and Crew; Nancy Rider; Jane Rider; Murray Rider, Marylou and Family, Frank Chinn.
