Aunt Flo and Grama Barb visited my husband at his work on the CCGS Sir Wilfred Laurier a few years back and when he gave them a tour of the ship Aunt Flo picked up one of the big dumb bells and started doing reps gave the boys a show! Then they had something to eat in the mess with his and the two ladies were bickering back and forth so much the cooks asked if they were a lesbian couple! Peter laughed when he told them no just sisters!

Aunty flo and uncle les were always so kind down to earth and full of a loving spirit that put everyone at ease. Although it had been many years since I had seen them they have always been in my thoughts and there they will live in perpetuity until we meet again.
