Letter to the Editor: Favourite teacher convalescing

My sister, Mrs. Becky Blakley, has been teaching in the valley for 30-plus years.

Dear Editor:

My sister, Mrs. Becky Blakley, has been teaching in the valley for 30-plus years. She is having knee replacement surgery (both knees). I thought her students past and present, and their families, might like to know and suggest sending a get well card to her. She accepts mail sent to her in care of the Esso Station in Radium.

Becky is well known and very cherished as a teacher. She is a little nervous going in for this surgery. Her daughter Candice Blakley,having just graduated university in Kamloops, has come home to look after her.  Becky will be home in no time, with a lot of physio and love from family and friends, she should be fine. Cards would be very appreciated, I’m sure.
