Thankyou and Happy Thanksgiving to the ambulance staff and all the Cortesian's who have passed on hugs and words of encouragement to our Friesen Family. John is fighting hard to have the health to be able to return to this beautiful Island and of course to plant another garden in the spring of his 86 th year. But for now it is a day at a time. So as Thanksgiving Sunday arrives I want to share his life long respect, toil, and honour to the fall harvest . As I lied beside him in the emergency ward he instructed me on how to complete the last chores of the harvest, the grapes and juicing, the pumpkins and squash, the corn and lettuce to share with you all, planting the fall rye. What we grow is so precious, not to be taken for granted, Food, Family, Love. Thank full.
