  1. Hello Mr. Friedt

    You may not remember me – It’s Simone Forget from Medicine Hat – you were my Religion teacher at McCoy High School for grades 9-12. You were also very supportive and inspiring in my spiritual growth and relationship with God.

    My sister (Maria Thompson) attended a conference in Edmonton (she works at a Seven Habits school in Medicine Hat, and is very involved in the leadership program there), and had a chance to reacquaint with you during a visit to your school… She told me about your current ministry… it’s so wonderful to know that you are out there in the world, sharing your gifts in ways that continue to inspire current and future leaders in the world.

    I was recently reflecting on people who have guided me on my spiritual journey… in thinking of you, I felt compelled to thank you, and to let you know that you are appreciated for all that you have done for me. I hope that you and your family are well.
