Sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Martha Allan, who passed away Sunday at her home in Fort Frances. Martha spent most of her years living in Devlin.
She will be sadly missed.
As well, sympathy to the family and friends of Lenard Martin. Many people in our district are feeling the sadness of his sudden passing last week.
May the family and his many friends find comfort in knowing you’re in the thoughts and prayers of many people.

Shirley Morrish recently returned home from Vancouver. She had flown out west with her daughter, Laureen, and grandchildren, Lucas and Laura, where she underwent laser surgery.
She says things went great.
To make the trip even better, there was an abundance of green grass, trees all in bloom, flowers, and warm temperatures.

Norm Shute arrived home from the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg on Sunday (March 20) after having undergone surgery about two weeks ago.
His final results are not back yet, but Norm and Iris certainly are very happy to be back in their own home.
Norm is very tired and still experiencing a lot of pain, though he, along with Iris and his three daughters, hope the worst is behind them.
Our community sends you best wishes for a full and speedy recovery!

Robin’s 2¢:
My philosophy of housecleaning:
•I don’t do windows because . . . I love birds and don’t want one to run into a clean window and get hurt.
•I don’t iron because . . . I choose to believe them when they say “permanent press.”
•I don’t put things away because . . . my kids will never be able to find them again.
•I don’t disturb cobwebs because . . . I want every creature to have a home of their own. •I don’t stress much on anything because “Type A” personalities die young and I want to stick around and become a wrinkled up, crusty old woman!
