I have a few health issues I am dealing with. Just about the

else goes wrong. I will keep trying. I have to admit, although it'll probably
curse me by doing so, I haven'y felt as good as I do right now for a long

incorrectly. Not that there would be people standing in line to contact
me so I thought I better get it corrected. So what you have now is correct.
I shall reserve an hour each day to respond to all the people who
remember me and will take the time to drop me a line, even if you just
want to cuss me out. It gets awful boring and lonesome being where you
are pretty much house/wheelchair bound. I know there are some of you hiding
out there, like the sweet little thing that used to take a walk with me
when our band was taking a break at Maivellete (sp?). You really were a

Name: Chiara White ( Jacquard )
Location: Red Deer, Alberta
Comments: Hello everyone! My name is Chiara White (formerly Jacquard),
my dad is Paul Jacquard, and I am coming to Yarmouth on September
19th/08. I am coming to see my aunt Viv. Was suppose to see my grama, Hilda,
but she passed away in June. I don't think I have been in Yarmouth since
I was about 2. Trust me that's a long time ago. I am very excited. I am
bringing my son Matt and his girlfriend Jenna. 32 days and counting. I
am hoping to see alot of stuff and alot of relatives. I only have a week
so it will be go,go,go. I want to find Wanda Haley. She is a cousin. I
just met her in April, here in Red Deer and then 4 days later she moved
back to Yarmouth. Anyway I am very excited to see Yarmouth and my family.
You will probably be able to spot me easily, I will be the one with the
camera around my neck, snapping pictures in every direction. Can't wait
to get there. See you all soon.
Comments: You need to correct 2 words in the Hello message. Change
their to there and then to than.
I have corrected it... Thank you.
Name: SANDY CHRISTIE
Location: GULFPORT, MISSISSIPPI
Comments: Be careful not to add the "e" on the end of my last name in
my email address. I won't get your email and that would be tragic for me.
I need a little help from some/one of my remaining friends in Yarmouth.
I had a pretty good email address book and in the process of changing email
services I lost pretty much all of the people who's address was in Yarmouth.
Through diligence I have gotten them all back with one exception. It would
mean so much to me if one of you know her and get in touch with her for
me. Tell her I carelessly lost her email address and would love so much
to hear from her again. Her name is Heather,and I don't know if her last
name is still Green or if she married and has a different last name. We
had corressponded back and forth a few times and the topic of if she was
married never came up.
Would you plese get in touch with her and let her know that I would
love to hear from her and that I am sorry I lost her address. It would
mean a lot to me. Heather's father was a great man and a good friend to
me when I needed some male influence in my life and I truely do not want
to loose touch with the family.
As a side note, I go in the Hospital on the 18th of Sept for brain
surgery, turns out the little bump on the outside of my head was a whole
lot bigger and benign on the inside. Doctor's won't say too much to me
about the possibilities of the results of the surgery. Chin up and put
it in God's hands. He's taken pretty good care of me this far, I'm not
going to give up the faith now. Sorry everybody, I did not mean to get
off onto that subject, but since I did, could I bother you to whisper a
little prayer for me. I do so badly want and need to come back home one
From a longtime homesick Yarmouth boy,
Good luck and God bless each and every one of you abundantly,
Name: Sandy Christie
Location: Gulfport, MS USA
Comments: I did not discover the mistake I made in my last posting,yesterday,
until I had already sent it off. In fact it was my wife who pointed it
out to me. With regards to the surgery I am going to have in Sept, it is
to remove a "MALIGNANT" tumor.There has always been plenty of room in my
head because my brain takes up so little space. I feel like such and idiot.
But I guess when you have more stuff in your head than there is room for,
I guess you should be able to get by with a mistake once in a while. Quite
actually, it was abnormal behavior(more so than is normal for me even),that
caused the suspicions which lead to the diagnosis.
Anyway, I love all of you and I am truely sorry for the mistake.
Would love to hear from some of you, before Sept 18th if you can manage
to do that for me. You klnow I would do it for every one of you.
