Clem Dowler is doing well following a slight stroke. He is to see a nutritionist in Davenport this week to make sure the medicine he is taking is OK to continue.
Jo Dowler is now in the Dove nursing home where she is receiving therapy. She likes it there and said the food is good and she's getting a lot of rest. Clem thinks she'll be there for a week or more. Cards may be sent to the Dowlers at the local address in the directory.
Jesse McKnight was hospitalized with congestive heart failure. Cards may be sent to the northern address in the directory.
Thanks: From the Family of Lillian Crawford.
We are deeply grateful for the prayers, cards, donations, and other expressions of sympathy that Saddlebag friends extended to us during Mom's illness and death.
Thank you also to the office staff, security, and the First Response Team for your prompt and caring assistance. We are all more secure knowing you are here.
Mom & Dad, along with their dear friends, Tam & Gord Smith, were pleased to be pioneers at the resort where they enjoyed many happy winters. Their families continue to experience and benefit from the kind and welcoming nature of everyone here. Thank You Linda Crawford
