I moved to South March in 1998 and was welcomed by many neighbours. Over the years, those neighbours became like family. My one neighbour, Lynn Hahn, was always very supportive of me. She was like a mother figure and became a true friend. During COVID we continued to check on one another and have chats outside or through the window. I would often pick up items for her at the grocery store or do the odd porch drop off of essentials that were missing from their online orders. Lynn is a special person whom I love to visit. I hope she enjoys this rock.
Mifanwy is a great neighbour who is always available to help. She jumps right in whenever and where ever help is needed. The rock will go under the trees in the natural part of her beautiful garden.
My painted rock will go to a lovely lady who continues to volunteer her time and talents to many organizations for over 55 plus years. She is always available to bake one of her famous chocolate cakes for any occasion or fundraiser. Mrs Barbara Vance, formerly Argue, is the epitome of a “Woman Involved”. Special thanks to Barb for being a leader and pioneer of agriculture throughout Dunrobin, Carp, Ontario and Canada.
My painted rock will go to my sister-in-law, Judi Garland, who got MS at 19 years old, and whose supportive husband died at 50. Now 77, she is courageously and quietly living in a wheelchair, with a live-in care giver. She would definitely rather have a different life, with no support, as the defiantly independent person she is, but she manages to smile and be kind to everyone around her. A good example to us luckier people!
