Photos forever

Dear Editor:

Thank you to Kenton,

In these days of hearing so much criticism of our youth I would like to publicly thank a young man who showed integrity and initiative to help me.

While shopping at a local grocery store last Saturday I inadvertently dropped my camera memory card from my pocket without realizing it.

When I returned home and found it missing I contacted all the stores in the vicinity to see if anyone had turned it in to them. None of the stores had received it.

The memory card had over 400 family photos within it and I was devastated by the loss.

On Monday morning my son, Ron Labrie, a teacher at Ponoka Composite High School, phoned to tell me he had been given my memory card by one of the students at the school. The young man, Kenton Johnson, checked the photos using his own camera and recognized ‘Mr. Labrie’ in some of the pictures.

No words can convey my true appreciation of this young man’s responsible and thoughtful actions. He is truly a credit to his parents and our youth today.

Thank you again, Kenton!

Heather Labrie
