Letters: Thanks for sharing

Sooke News Mirror right back publishing after July 31 fire.

I’m just reading your ‘Big hearts in a caring community’ in the  August 7, 2013 edition of Sooke News Mirror.

It’s so wonderful that you took the time to share your personal thoughts and feelings with us.

Irene and I have lived here since late 2006 and we also have the same feelings about this special place.

Every day we absorb the rich ambience and share this experience with our wonderful neighbours.

It is a place to grow, find oneself and to count ones blessings.It’s really exciting to be here.

As an aside – we first met you when you came to our property as part of the 2013 Secret Garden Tour. Thanks again for the impressive write-up you did for this event.  We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Pirjo, thanks also for your many wonderful photographs and previous articles. You are making a valuable contribution to our lives and the Sooke community.

Eric Burns and Irene Billard
