Louann, Kevin and Sean

George was our next door neighbour for seven years in Leduc. Right from day one he and Rita were friendly and Louann often went over for coffee in the morning. Sean shoveled their driveway each winter, but that did not stop George from coming out in his orange coveralls to help out. We loved seeing the two of them just about every day drive out to one event or another and meeting at the mail box to catch up for a minute. We went camping together to Drumheller once to see the Passion Play. Unfortunately, we got rained out but all five of us sat there for a time in the pouring rain until they kicked us out! We moved away this past July and missed them very much! They were such great neighbours. Our hearts are sad but our memories are many and joyful.
