My deepest condolences to Adell Baxter’s family. I met Ernie and Adell at the Revera McConachie Gardens Retirement
Home. Being from a ranching, farming community, and having lived at Edson, AB. for 35 years, I traded a lot of fun discussion with Ernie and Adell, in the short time I knew them. They will be forever remembered.
