T-Rex sends a message to Kamloops residents during COVID-19

Someone dressed up in a T-rex costume brought a smile to residents faces

A Kamloops business owner couldn’t help but smile when she looked out the window of her funeral home, on Thursday.

Someone dressed up in a T-Rex costume was walking downtown with a sign that read, ‘Extinction sucks, stay home’ – Rex.

With increasing concern over the COVID-19, business owner Kim Norbert appreciated the sentiment this individual was putting out into the community during a difficult time.

“When this awesomeness is outside your office! Is it ironic he’s outside our funeral home too! Have a great day and play nice,” she wrote on Facebook.

Norbert operates Alternatives Funeral and Cremation in Kamloops and continues to work during the pandemic to provide a service for those who need funeral arrangements.

“Our focus has always been on the comfort and well-being of our families. We have consistently offered from-home arrangements with options such as email and telephone and will heavily rely on these choices moving forward,” stated Norbert.

Let us know what you are doing to stay positive during this time of self-isolation and send an email to newstips@kelownacapnews.com.
