Annette and I met on a Saturday night in April, 1957 in Hartney, and we went to a movie at Mr. Arnason’s Theatre.  We dated until June of 1959 and were married on June 20th at Bethel United Church, followed by a reception and supper at Annette’s cousins farm, Lucy and Ron Ramsey.  We travelled to Clear Lake for our honeymoon, in the 1957 Chevy.  We took up residence in a small house in my parent’s farmyard.  Our son, Michael, joined our happy family on January 18th, 1960.  And our daughter, Sharon, arrived on August 22nd, 1961.  Our children spent many, happy hours, at Grandma’s house nearby.  We farmed alongside my parents until June, 1970, when Mom and Dad retired to Souris and Annette and I bought the farm.  When Michael and Denise married in July 1986, they moved into the farm house and Annette and I built a new house in Deleau, where we lived happily until Annette was hospitalized on April 14th and passed on April 25th in my arms and supported by the wonderful nurses in the Souris Hospital Palliative Care Unit.  Annette and I have both enjoyed travelling over the years, and have travelled coast to coast in Canada and the United States, spending several winters in Arizona.  We visited Hawaii three times, spent a month in Alaska, travelled to Churchill, and to Europe.  In 2020, just as the Covid was starting, we took a wonderful Caribbean Cruise on a brand new ship.  Annette’s funeral service was held from St Paul’s United Church, Souris on May 2nd with Tanis Podobni officiating.  She was laid to rest in the Souris – Glenwood Cemetery on a beautiful, sunny and warm afternoon.  Lunch and visitation followed, in the United Church Hall then supper at our house.
