Pop­ping with Pride

More of Our Canada - - Contents - Gerry Howat, Prince Al­bert, Sask.

What a nice sur­prise I got while vis­it­ing my daugh­ter Holly Howat re­cently. She had writ­ten a lovely story, “Eva’s Pop­corn Stand” (July 2018), about my mom, Eva Mcnaught. Holly wanted it to be a sur­prise for my 80th birth­day and it re­ally was. I spot­ted it in her copy of the mag­a­zine—which she’s bought me a sub­scrip­tion for. What a lovely birth­day gift. It’s a story that our whole fam­ily, as well as the hun­dreds of peo­ple who knew my mom as the “pop­corn stand lady,” will shed a tear over while read­ing it. Thanks to Holly for the great job writ­ing it, and to More of Our Canada for pub­lish­ing it.
