Metal bouquet in Ladner will always provide a reference point

Re: Metal artists turn farm equipment into beautiful bouquet in Ladner, July 4

Thank you for the article regarding local artists Yorke and Karen Graham. What a lovely idea using old scrap farm equipment to make a piece of art. And how clever of the developer to showcase his new building, apart from the rest. His future tenants will always have a reference point for their visitors. I will drive by today to have a look see.

And I was very pleased to see the little park open again in the name of “Big John” and his sister. I also would like to see a park bench, as a tribute to Big John, at Johnny's Corner.

Most of us were stunned to hear of the death of our perpetual happy “teenager,” with his booming voice and hugs for his friends. We were all his friends, even if he didn't know our names.

I can't afford a bench on my own but perhaps we could all chip in with a donation at Envision Credit Union. I will look into it.
