EDITOR:

It's just in recent years, in his 90s, that my husband Ray Brown shared this: “Toward the end of the Second World War – laying in a foxhole in France; talking to God, praying 'if I ever get out of this, help me get back home to Richmond and build a business there (which he did), find a wife and have a family.'”

After five years of marriage and three children, with DVA's help, built a modern little home but after seven more years and now four more boys in 1959, an answer to prayer. My dad hoped we’d take on our old home place and off to farming.

Shopping malls came to Summerside and country stores had to fold up – a rough go. But always answers to prayer. Old empty store buildings are now a thriving automotive store operated by son Ray Jr. and family.

How great is our God, His will be done. And a truly happy Father's Day to all fathers.

Mrs. Ray Brown,

Summerside
