  3. I am saddened to hear this. I spent many a memorable moment with Fatima and her family in the farm and also at our place in Winnipeg. I still remember the windmill in the farm yard. God bless you all

  4. To Tina’s family,
    The paid loosing a loved one causes is undescribable. God did not mean for it to be this way and he promises we will be reunited with our loved ones (John 5:28,29) that is a beautiful hope we could all have, hold on to it and cherish those moment you had with Tina

  5. To the Hager and Swanson Family, Our deepest sympathy in the loss of your Mom, grandmother, daughter, and sister.
    It has been quite a few years since we saw Fatima but think of her fondly and the fun we had on the farm in Michigan and here in Manitoba. Knowing the pain is over is a blessing.
    Keeping you close in thought and prayer,
    Donna (Abraham) Wowchuk

  6. So sorry to hear of your family’s loss. I was a classmate and neighbor of “Fatima’s” growing up. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  7. Sorry to hear of Fatima passing on. I have positive memories of her and her sibling from Whitman grade school. I remember family talk of your grandfather being at my grandfathers funeral. That would have been about 65 years ago.

We are friends from many years back of the Hager family and spent time on the farm with her folks and siblings!
