  1. John (my co-worker), Millie and Lori, please accept my sympathies for your recent loss. May he rest in peace, and I pray that the good Lord will provide comfort and healing to you all in this time.

    Although it has been many years since I’ve seen him, I will never forget Marvin and the many Thanksgiving weekends we shared at Brigden Fair. Not many men would take a little girl from his church and sit for hours with her to watch the horse shows and take several tours through the barns, but Marvin did happily, rain or shine. To this day it is my favourite thing to do for Thanksgiving. Thank you for the dear memories, you’re always in my heart, your “little horse girl”.
