LETTER: You are invited to help celebrate the life of Johan Kruus

Dear editor:

Following a two year battle with brain cancer, Johan courageously released his material body and joined the forces of nature. His indomitable spirit lives on in his daughters Kai and Talia and in his wife Avril.

Johan is the son of Annie and the late Peeter Kruus and the brother of Anders, Martin, and Linda. He is also family to Anne and Michael, Darrel and Dianna, and Lyanne. He will be missed by his extended family and all the adults and children whose lives he lit up with his energy and enthusiasm. Johan's gifts and talents were far-reaching and touched the lives of everyone he encountered.

Johan's family would like to express their sincerest gratitude for the incredible community support we received during his treatment.

Please join us on Saturday November 14th in the Rossland Secondary School auditorium from 5 P.M. to 8 P.M. for a celebration of Johan's life. The celebration will begin with music, the sharing of photos and stories, and will culminate in a shared pot luck meal. Please bring your own dishes to minimize clean up and environmental impact.

Thank-you,

The Symington-Kruus Family
