Local connection to highway tragedy

Condolences to Amber Hazelwood on the loss of her brother who was tragically killed when trying to get his logging semi out of the deep mud in Northern Saskatchewan. He was only 29 years old. Amber was in the process of leaving Mayfair last weekend to be with her fiancé Shawn Ferron in Cold Lake, Alta. She lived in Mayfair approximately four years and will be thoroughly missed. Amber, a mother to three children, was the caretaker in the hall and did the water testing two times a day. Shawn's mother Bev (Darrell) Pollard lives in rural Mayfair, so Amber will return for visits.

Rick and Valerie Taylor of Mullingar travelled last weekend to visit daughter Carmen and family in Calgary, Alta. Carmen has resided there for many years and sells real estate.

Keith and Faye Liebaert are sprucing up their yard as they will be hosting Faye's close relatives for a weekend get together in a few weeks. Many will travel from the Davidson area and Alberta and son Kevin (Lauren) will come from Brandon, Man. Meeting new relatives is always an interesting experience. Congratulations to both of them on the celebration of their 40th wedding anniversary Aug. 2. Aug. 1, Faye and Keith were invited for a Nachtegaele gathering at Connie and Linda's (nee Nachtegaele) cabin at Aquadeo Beach. These women are the recently deceased Gus and Irene Nachtegaele's daughters.

Get well wishes go to Rick Adam of Mullingar and we are hoping the best for him.

 I've been busy for three days visiting three cousins on my mother's side (Nachtegaele) from Belgium. I will tell you more about this in my next column.
