From our hearts

Two weeks ago you stitched up my arm … and, today, I wish you were here

Editor, The News:

Re: Beloved Maple Ridge doctor passes away (The News, Oct. 16).

In memory of Dr. Clarence Fernandes, my dear friend.

I’ll never forget the day you offered to drive Chris, Ryan, Jen, and me to Winnipeg to see my folks. We were young, poor, and so full of life.

Vienna, Aaron, Aalton, you and all of us piled into the camper and off we went. We had a blast that summer, didn’t we, my friend.

I miss you, Clarence. Two weeks ago you stitched up my arm, you looked after Jiri and, today, I wish you were here.

You and Jiri would share a joke or two, you would enjoy his homemade bread, we would talk about our kids, and you would laugh. Oh, how I love to hear you once again.

My dear friend, Clarence, on behalf of the Novy family, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for us in the past 33 years.
