My thoughts and prayers go out to Joe, Dan and Tim. I have a favourite memory of your mom and dad back in June 1953. I came for a visit from Toronto by bus to spend time with my favourite aunt and uncle. I don't remember much about your house except lots of green grass. It was during that visit that your dad, Joe introduced me to bbq steak and salad. It was a new experience and your dad said I could not leave the table til I had finished the whole thing! Your mom Roe just laughed at me but Joe was very adamant that I must eat. There was lots of laughter and new things for me to learn.
I never did get to spend time with my new cousins Dan and Tim but I sure loved the time with Roe and Joe, my mom Helen's sister and husband Joe. It is a time I will never forget!!
