Only two weeks ago when we harvested our moose here in Manitouwadge,
I said to Mike "gee, I know who would really enjoy that heart". Garfield always appreciated when Mike delivered a deer or moose heart to the little house at Big Lake. And the wild flowers there in the highway ditches at
Garfield''''s "corner" were so colourful. I recall years ago asking his permission to pick them for the dining room tables at Timberlane. Thank you, Garfield, for being a friend to Mike. Maggie Schut

Very sad to hear about your Dad''s passing, Garfield, Carol and the rest of the family too that I haven''t met. I have known Garfield all my life and its very sad to know he is gone.
It will always be with some sadness when we pass his little place at Big Lake Dam Corner.
Hope to see you next summer Garfield and Carol.
Glad I had that visit with you all and your Dad a year ago.

To all the Vanhorn family-- I have lots of great memories of the family living across the road from Grandpa & Grandma Nevills place in Mindemoya. There was always a warm welcome from Mr. and Mrs Vanhorn and family and even if all were busy, they made time for a little girl from Green Bay.
