Tuesday, January 8, 2019I would like to extend my condolences to Abe, Ed, Dan and Kim. I have fond memories of growing up two farms over from the Epps. I remember Eleanore allowing me to skate on the creek at her parent’s place and then coming into the house to warm up over a hot chocolate. Abe and Eleanore were also instrumental in my Christian growth as a teenager at Bethany Mennonite Church. She was a lovely lady, well loved and now is with her Lord and Saviour, that she loved.

Sunday, January 6, 2019What a privilege it was to know your wife and mother, Mr. Epp, Ed, Danny, Shirley, Kim and families. I will always remember Mrs. Epp as a classy lady who showed grace and had an attitude of gratitude no matter what came her way. She seemed oblivious to the thorns in her garden of life, and chose to focus on the roses. She saw beauty in everyone and genuinely cared about those around her. Those were some of the first thoughts that came to me as I reflected on her life; but above all that, she loved you, her family! She was so proud of each one of you, of your spouses, your children and their children. She never tired of singing your praises. I pray that God’s peace and the memories of your sweet wife, mother and grandmother comfort you. With love, Hannah and Maged

Friday, January 4, 2019Our sincere condolences to Mr. Abe Epp, Dan, Ed, and Kim and all your extended families. Lina & I both enjoyed working for all of you as teenagers shortly after we immigrated to Canada in 1976 for 8 great years and many great memories. Thank you for teaching us good work ethics early in our youth. Mrs. Epp was a loving and compassionate boss whether in the packing barn or the orchard. She was a blessing to many people through her entire life here on Earth and we hope to meet again one day in Heaven. Until we meet again With much love John & Lina Regehr
