This girl. After years of hanging out with her brothers as kids and in my early tweens and teens, she and I became friends when many of her closest friends graduated a year before her and left our small town to pursue secondary education. Leanne still had one year of high school and even though she was two grades above me, and I was only in my grade 10 year, we spent a lot of time together. We cut laps in her little red mustang, smoked cigarettes, (I know... my bad) listened to music, talked about her graduation dress shopping and boys, and whatever gossip was happening in 1991-1992 around Big River Sask.
Years later she became one of my mom’s most trusted and joyful friends when so many of us migrated out of BR and she stayed to help run her family’s business. She and her husband have traveled with my mom and Ted, curled with them and have shared many nights of dinner, drinks, story telling and laughing. It’s always a treat to get time with my mom and Leanne. Easy and fun.
Over the last few years she has been a big support to my mom and even though we are separated by over 800 km and go far too long between visits, she is a friend that is ALWAYS willing to pick up wherever we left off!! Leanne, you have been a friend to me for almost 30 years, and I am grateful that my mom gets to enjoy the same friendship and laughter! Happy Birthday #sweetpea ! Hope that old cowboy spoiled you rotten today! 🤠🎂💖
