Shirley Allan was back on the job at the Fairway Store last Tuesday (Oct. 29) with a big smile for her customers. It’s been about one year since Shirley became sick and required treatments.
She tells me her illness is in remission and is feeling fine for now and progressing satisfactorily. Glad to have you back, Shirley, and wish you better health along the way!

My condolences on the recent passing of Len West, 97, who I used to talk with while attending church at Calvary Baptist. He had lived in Emo before moving to Rainycrest in Fort Frances.
Len always had good points to stress, and he knew his history.

I met Alex Vargas last Wednesday heading to the post office and asked how his health was. Alex mentioned he was feeling fine and progressing very well after his major surgery in Winnipeg.
The following day, I chatted with Mrs. Ogden and asked about her husband, Alex, after his major surgery. All went well, she said, adding they are just waiting for results and will go from there.

I visited Art Bonot at La Verendrye hospital last Wednesday afternoon. He had just come out of therapy and says he is doing just fine.
Of course, it will be a while longer before he heads home.
