Mona Henderson Lives in Manchester, England and just recently she got the Christmas present of her life, a return airline ticket from her home to Cranbrook, some 60 miles from Fernie, where her sister, Irene Guest resides.
The ticket was a present from her niece, Alva Hutchinson of Fernie and her nephew, Dale Guest of Whitecourt, Alberta, and will enable the sisters to spend the festive season together.
Mrs Henderson came to Canada for the first time in 1977, but prior to that had not seen her sister, Irene Guest for over 20 years.
She is scheduled to arrive at Cranbrook airport on Dec. 21, where she will be met and driven to Fernie just in time for Christmas.
