Berliner Boys Luncheon

Applebee’s Grant Park, Winnipeg, MB

Each Wednesday, Syd Reimer and Glen Kehler, two Berliner Kehlers cousins, have met for lunch, usually at Applebee’s.  Many Berliners have joined them from time to time.

To fight the mid-winter blues, come join us for lunch with the Berliners.  As you well know, this lunch will align itself to be spirited and vocal – if not downright gabby. ­They’ll never stop talking and when they have nothing more to say they will go on talking for the sheer pleasure of it. The air will turn into a whirlwind of words and laughter.  Let us know if you will be coming – email

When: Wednesday, January 18, 2017
What time: 11:45am to 1:30pm
Where: Applebee’s Grant Park, 1150 Grant Ave., Winnipeg,  R3M 2A6 (Map Link)
Co$t: Your lunch off the menu!

Grandma, it is now 9 years since Jesus took you home. I remember well the moment your spirit left your earthly body. I will always treasure the memory of holding your hand as Jesus came and lifted your spirit to be joined with Him in eternity. How I treasure that memory!




Jacob J K Kehler


Grandpa, for you it is now 29 yrs. since you left us so suddenly. I remember you telling me how you prayed for “the generations to come”. I didn’t understand it at the time, but now I know what a rich spiritual heritage you left us and how grateful I am to our Heavenly Father for  allowing me to be your grandchild.

You were both very instrumental in helping shape the person I am today. Thank you for praying for us regularly. Your prayers are still being answered today. We miss you, but know you are with your Lord & Saviour. What a glorious day that will be when we will be re-united!
