Wesley Schnieder
Reply from Vickie Metcalfe (70): Bottineau, ND



Yesterday, I printed and delivered the message to Wes from his niece. Wes sat down in his chair at the kitchen table, got out his glasses and read quietly. Although Buie and Thor both vied to get Wes to pet him Wes gave full attention to Connie’s message.


He appreciates all the personal comments written to him. And say, ” Here Ovidia did you read this?” I also happened to notice one day, Ovidia has a file she puts all his stories and correspondence in, saves and they read over again.


Last night,I commented to Wes, “I suspect Christmas has always been your favorite holiday from childhood, because, your birthday comes so soon after.”


Our friend, Wes will soon be 9 decades old a couple days after Christmas. Vickie

San Haven – Mildred Isackson
Message/Pictures posted by Dick Johnson (68): Dunseith, ND
Gary and Friends,

Most of the folks who lived or worked at San Haven will remember Mildred Isackson. She was the director of nurses for most of the time the San was in operation. These are two pictures of her, one from the very earliest days and one in her later years. I apologize for the darkness of the older photo, but that’s the way it is. On the back it says, ‘Mrs. Isackson at work at San Haven’. Thanks Gary.
