There are many reasons to send concern sympathy and get well wishes to people in our rural area. Sincere sympathy to the family and friends is Raymond Jewell. His wife Linda, daughter Rachel plus all family members and Raymond’s many friends will miss him deeply. I remember Raymond as an active mechanic and my own dad appreciating Raymond's mechanic services. Your community is holding you close in our thoughts at this sad time. Also deep sympathy to the family of Ronald Turcott. Ronald was the son-in-law of Gaydonna Baker, and he has many family members on our district. Rob’s wife and much of his family live in Dryden. This was an unexpected passing. Sending caring thoughts and prayers to all grieving. Sadly another sympathy to Ian Booth and his family in the passing of Ian’s sister Christine Brunwin. Thinking of you all as you grieve this loss. Get well wishes for to Gayle Hyatt. Gayle was in Thunder Bay hospital last week after having a heart attack. She is now in her home, and feeling much better. Hopefully this continues. Sending wishes for a full recovery to Lois Shine, Lois has been in the hospital for quite some time. We hope to see her out and about soon. Lois always has a hug and a smile for all. Get well wishes to Audrey Forster; Audrey has also been hospitalized. I’m sure all at Flinder’s Place apartments will be happy to see her return home as will all people who know this great lady. Harvey Shine is also in the hospital, his community sends his wishes of care and concern and hope he be home soon. A reminder that the Rainy River District Agriculture Fair takes place August 20 and 21. The Queen and Royalty crowning takes place Thursday August 19 at 7 p.m. at the small stage at the fair grounds. I’d like to wish Leah Bagacki, Georgia Romyn, Aynsley Teeple and Makinnley McCormick all the best in this pageant and hope you have a lot of fun. The girls are marked on their banner, interview, a Letter to the Editor and 2K a Day of physical activity. Robin’s 2 cents Never laugh at your significant other's choices, because you happen to be one of them.
