Thank you Ashcroft for all your support

Author thanks community for good wishes and donation of a memorial bench for her late husband, Ed Gyoba.

Dear Editor

I would like to thank everyone who attended the candle light vigil for Eddie. Andto all those who have stopped me on the street to tell me I am in their thoughts. I am so grateful to you all.

I was away for a few days lately and came home to find the bench dedicated to Eddie. It was so wonderful. I walk past it two or three times a day when I walk the dog and I reach to touch it each time.

I miss him every day and now having a special  place to sit and talk to him is wonderful.

I am so very grateful to all of the people who made the bench possible. I have lived in Ashcroft for 45 years and it truly is the most wonderful place in the world. May God bless.

Barb Gyoba
