Families say thanks to the community of Clearwater

We are grateful to the PAC for suggesting that Courtney and Skye be remembered in this project

Editor, The Times:

On behalf of the Buck and Dekelver families we would like to thank everyone for the support that we have received over the past year.

This support has come in many forms. We appreciate the kind words that people have for us, wherever we go.

We are astonished by the voting support that the Raft River PAC has received for their Aviva project and ecstatic that it has made it into the final round. We are grateful to the PAC for suggesting that Courtney and Skye be remembered in this project.

We are also thankful for the assistance and guidance that we received in planning and building the cross memorial by the river at the pull out on Wolf’s Corner. Many thanks go to: Bart Chenuz, Jim Zsednai, John Walden and the TRU welding students at Clearwater Secondary School, the CSS shop classes, Darren Coates, Kamloops Powder Coating, Daniel Boudreau, Cal and Josh Traub, Monty and Jarius Bromley, On Call Service Center and Wadlegger Logging. We hope that we have not missed anyone.

The support we have received is the hidden value of living in this community.

Brent and Tracy Buck


Rick and Cathy Dekelver
