Very well said Robert, and great piece, Jason. I felt much the same way when I left Kirkendall. I only lived there for three years and rented on Herkimer, but I left with both sadness and a fondness for that area of our city. I met some amazing people and so much happened to me as personal during my time there.

I believe we were both inspired by the engagedness of one of the same people if the name you mentioend above refers to the woman I am thinking of. She would have been a Durand resident back then, but very active in life in general. I found a lot of that in the communities that make up Kirkendall, Durand, and Strathcona. I am sure you can say that about so many communities in our city, but it was my first real taste of what being involved in your community could bring to your life.

Thanks again for sharing this.
