Stories rekindled fond memories for reader

From our January 2013 issue

Dear Friends:

I was so glad to read a story from my hometown of Kenville, Man., written by Ed Smith. I can remember Mrs. Smith and her family living down beside Mrs. Foote.

Darrell Foote of British Columbia and Margerie (Baldwin) Holmstead of Brandon came to visit my husband and me 12 years ago. Margerie has now moved to Sidney, B.C.

Also, the story by Don Tataryn of Scarborough, Ont. mentioned working for Bill Kooistar, whom I also remember. What a small world we live in and how the mentioning of a name can trigger memories from the past!
