Kindness in bloom

Dear editor,

I noticed in your recent Times that Brad Hogan was retiring after serving our Fort Frances community for many years. Very quietly Brad has done some special things for folks, without anyone knowing about it. For many years he has been making either a corsage or a boutonniere for each resident living in Rainycrest for the day of their birthday. Someone in Activation just calls Brad, tells him the date of a birthday, and Voila, a flower is ready to be picked up and delivered to the lady or gent the morning of their birthday. By wearing the corsage or boutonniere, everyone notices that it is their birthday, and makes them feel very special on that day. With all the residents, guess how many flowers he sends each year! Thanks so much Brad!
