Congratulations are also in order for the local grandmother, Marlene Mappin — enjoy the addition to your family, all.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Frank Bates who passed away on Nov. 18 in Stettler. He was one week away from his 97th birthday. Frank and his late wife Amy (nee Nixon) farmed south of Byemoor for a number of years. Four sons were born to the couple — Mike, Pat, Tim and Dana.

Sympathy is also extended to the family of Dennis Schultz who passed away on Nov. 21 in Brooks. He was 81. Dennis was raised south of Endiang, on the farm of his parents Paul and Connie Schultz.

Dennis’ grandparents Julius and Emma Schultz were founding members of the church and several family members are buried at St. Peter’s.

Our thoughts are with all the families who are mourning the loss of these two fine gentlemen.

Happy 98th Birthday wishes are sent to a former Byemoor resident Thelma Keast. Thelma celebrates her special milestone birthday on Nov. 28. Congratulations Thelma from your many Byemoor – Endiang friends and neighbours — we are thinking of you on your special day and wish you many more.

It is less than a month until Christmas, makes one wonder where the time has gone.

Humour for the day — “Dear Santa — For Christmas I want a big fat bank account and a thin body. Please don’t mix it up like you did last year and the year before that.”
