Thank you Meredith; what a tributeto Jim Ruel, a kind & humble man

To The Daily Sun,

Last Friday Jim Ruel took his final ride down Main Street. Words cannot express our gratitude to all of you lined up on Main Street to give him a gentle wave goodbye. What a tribute to a kind, humble man who spent many years on that very street. It was very emotional for us all yet we all had the same reaction, "Wow, what a great community we live in."

A special thanks to the American Legion, Norm McGuigan for displaying the American flag from the fire truck and to the Meredith Police Department assisting with traffic to keep the family all together.

On behalf of the entire Ruel family, we would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the food, cards, flowers and kind words of support in our recent loss. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and a friend to many.

Thank you LRGH Senior Services Unit, you are truly exceptional

To The Daily Sun,

Our mother was recently a patient at the Senior Services Unit at Lakes Region General Hospital, where she left us to go home to the Lord.

We miss her very much. The staff at the Senior Services Unit made here last days with us truly bearable. We were a large group (with at least two of us spending every night in her room for 12 days) and they made any and all accommodations to ensure our comfort, to the best of their ability. They treated my mom and all of us with dignity, compassion and care. We are so thankful to them for all they did for us. They made a horrible, agonizing journey as easy as it could be, under the circumstances.

We would like to let everyone know just how grateful, appreciative and thankful we are for all their efforts. They are truly an exceptional group of people.

The loving children of Ruth A. Messier
