For the first 35 years of my life, I lived in a large city in England, then together with my husband and children emigrated to Canada.
During the 27 years we have lived in this country, we have moved across Canada twice. From Sarnia, Ont. to Calgary, Edmonton, and Fort McMurray, Alta., then back to Ontario and Fort Frances, 12 years ago.
From this experience, we have learned it’s people who make the community we live in “home,” and folks we have grown to know and love rather than the place, we miss, if we leave.
My husband, daughter, and I just took part in the “Relay for Life” on Friday/Saturday at Pither’s Point Park and found the whole experience overwhelming and very emotional. To the organizers, participants, and survivors, you are awesome folks!
We feel privileged to live in Fort Frances among such caring and supportive people. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
