I am so sorry to learn of the passing of cousin Anna May. Her dad Lee, and my dad Mike, were brothers. Lee's family was very much a part of my growing up. My big sister Isabelle spent a lot of time with Mavis, Anna May and Connie. I remember them in our bedroom (Isabel and I shared a room) when I was "kicked out" so they could set up the record player and hang out together. They went to public school and high school together. Brothers John and George did their own thing while Sybil and Frances were closer in age to me. How I remember the winter your family were living out in country and we had a big piece of cardboard to slide down a huge hill. "Adults visiting" was pretty boring for kids but that was the best visit—ever! Leo and Daniel, again boys do their own thing but I remember the sorrow throughout the family when Art died accidentally days before his wedding in 1975. Baby Janet Lynn we've shared many lunches. Love you! Hugs and love to all of you and your families. Jeanne and Michel I'm so sorry for your loss of your mom. Take care and stay well. ~Lily
