I’m sad to learn of the passing of our beloved past-neighbour, Mr. Jait. Rena taught me how to tend a garden when I moved to the island (at the age of 18) adjacent to their lovely ranch. Emil always had a kind wave and a smile and helped me with a ditched-vehicle one winter. When my children were young they always referred to Mr. Jait as the “nice farmer” up the road, I’ve talked about this lively couple as being a wonderful example of older-generation hard-working folk. Mr. Jait was still post-pounding for his fence line this year. We’ll miss his smiling face and warm smiles, my condolences to the family for their loss.
Sincerely, Darlene, Jessica, Samantha & Carsen Morris.
