    We have fond memories of Nigel’s readiness to always smile and say hello at GV even in the middle a bunch of his peers….
    Words fail us at these times but we’ve proved the reality of the comfort from Heaven when a life has ended at a time that we as humans thought was too soon. You’re in our thoughts and our prayers. Daily.

    Dear Murray, Beth and family,
    Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to “be” at Nigel’s beautiful funeral. His precious life was too short but we’re thankful for wonderful memories that can last forever. In his lifetime, his life touched so many others with his love and kindness but perhaps even more of a treasure is that in his passing he may have saved so many other young people from similar grief. We may never know. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you work through these challenging times. We’re thankful that you have so many around the world sharing in your grief and sending their care and love.

I would have loved to be ‘in person’ for his service today, however, I was glad to be part of the virtual service.

We will remember his beautiful smile and his kind heart. Our hearts are hurting for you all with the loss of your beautiful son and brother.

    Dear Murray Beth and Family, We just want to share a memory of Nigel. He was in our home for a sing, and each of the young people were invited to share why they chose their hymn that night.
    Nigel said he was living in his vehicle and he sang this hymn sometimes to help him remember he wasn’t alone. Sorry we can’t the remember the exact number. We do remember the way it touched our hearts.
    Our deepest care and sympathies to you all today.

Still remembering the Sunday morning meeting he came to at dad’s house recently when things were starting to open up and how happy he was to be there. I don’t know how many times he said how good it felt. He will be greatly missed.

    To my Aunty Beth, Uncle Murray, Carlie and Nathan. Words can’t begin to express how heart broken we are for you loss. It is even more painful knowing we can’t be there with you all. One of the first memories I have of Nigel is from when I was 6 years old and we we were visiting Canada from Australia. We were pretty inseparable that trip. I have this vivid memory of us building a fort using couch cushions and crawling around pretending to be puppies together. These memories remind me that Nigel will continue to live on in the hearts of those who remember and love him. Sending love and hugs. Liss and Nate xoxo

    Dearest Murray, Beth, Carlie, and Tidd’s,

    Above all we remember a loving, affectionate, smiling, and kind Nigel; a true joy to know and love. We hold each of you close to our hearts these days, knowing that your sorrow is as deep as your love for him will always be.

    We know God is proving and you are experiencing that the deeper the injury in your hearts, the more tender the love and the longer the arm that reaches down and touches the aching wound. He can heal, comfort and embrace you as you face this.

    We love all of you beyond words…

    My heartfelt sympathy to you folks, as you struggle through about the worst experience this life can throw at you. It will be hard to comprehend right now, but there will eventually be peace and even joy again, through God’s grace, support of loved ones, and never giving up on the hard road. “Hang on for dear life”.

    Our hearts ache .Nigel was loved by us all . We already miss his sparkling smile, his larger than life way of saying so many kind and thoughtful things; that were usually followed by a warm embrace. One of our last conversations was at Katrina’s wedding where we all had such a happy day ; he gave me the biggest hug and said “Auntie Twy you look amazing” .
    When Bruce was in the accident, Nigel made many a tearful phone calls to us from Calgary, wishing he was there with us, to help us through our crisis . Such a tender heart .
    These are hard days , know we are with you all.
    So glad God’s grace is a comfort . He knows our hearts .
    Much love
    Bruce and Twyla Rickman

    I never had the honour of meeting Nigel. However, he made a huge impact on my son, Brandon Fong, as a solid friend, both supportive, fun to play sports with and sharing a love of the trades. Bless Nigel. He sounded like a lovely soul. He will be sadly missed. My thoughts are with his family. Tari Lowe

    My memories of Nigel and Carlie go back to when they were about 7 and 9, and you had come as a family to Bonners Ferry convention. I worked in the dining room, and Carlie and Nigel begged me to sign them up as water pourers on the workers table, and I was delighted to do that, and was rewarded with 2 memorable hugs. I watched them at their job, through the convention meals, and ALWAYS they BOTH were so diligent about doing their job to the best of their ability. Wonderful memories of sweet, innocent children, just wanting to give their all. . Reg and I have you all in our hearts and our prayers. ❤️

    We met with Nigel and Roxanne on Wednesday nights. Because Nigel was Murray’s son and we knew Murray well from earlier days we had a lot of fun and teased Nigel. He was a gorgeous kid and had a great sense of humour. He was very helpful in our little bible stiudy group. We really missed them both when they left. It was shocking news beyond belief .Murray and Beth our hearts are breaking with yours. No parent should face this. Sending our deepest condolences. Xx

    Nigel from a very young age was a frequent visitor at my parents house. He was one who was always full of exuberance and a passion for the moment. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time. Remember the good times. At times growing up it’s like he was a permanent fixture around the house. He will always be remembered. It’s difficult to express any message that conveys the sadness felt for your family.

    The first time I met Nigel was at a basketball camp and. I remember Nigel being one of the best players there, and throughly enjoying the grind of training and improving.. Later, being a teammate and friend of Nigel’s at Seaquam was a pleasure. His kindness and openness were traits I admired and looked up to during those years. My heart goes out to all of his friends, family, and loved ones. RIP Nigel Penner 🕊🤍

    We have been thinking of you so much over the past few days. We were very sad to hear of Nigel’s passing. When he first moved to Calgary, Nigel came to our house for Sunday meeting, and we appreciated him and the other young people who came with him. Nigel was always friendly, likeable and kind to our boys, and would sometimes go downstairs after meeting and shoot a few balls through their mini-hoop! Once when we were away, Nigel helped start the singing! We feel for your great loss and sadness.
