Happy Belated Turkey day Dad. Sorry I'm late. Hope you enjoyed all those delicious smells coming up to you, I had dinner with Mah. It was nice. Ashley cooked dinner for her and the boys. Portland High won the turkey game against Deering again this year.
Mah is doing well, she's healing every day and doing so well with it. The Dr's are pretty much amazed. she doesn't give herself enough credit, but she IS amazing.
We had our first snow storm Wednesday. we got about 6" . NY got a lot, they have gotten about 7 feet of snow, they've had deaths, injuries. its very sad.
I have been doing my genealogy still (big surprise ha? lol) and found some of Mah's family on Grampies side. they are her 2nd cousins. her Dads brother Joseph grand kids. I contacted them and everyone's thrilled, them and us. the 2nd cousins name is Leo, he's 88. I'm trying to go through his daughter to have him talk to Mah on the phone. I don't know his health and don't feel I should be blunt and ask, so I'm just going through her mentioning things, I know Mah would love it, she doesn't know yet that I'm trying to get it so they have communication, (secret..sshhh)
I don't remember if I told you or not, I met with this historical society in South Berwick. They are using the Pelletiers as learning tools called journey through time, for the kids in schools teaching the kids about the immigrants and the journeys from Canada to Maine and what life was like. I found that on line and when I contacted them letting them know that I was the great granddaughter of Joseph and Mah being the granddaughter, they asked if I could meet them and they wanted others to meet me as well. So David and I met with them. They were nice, unfortunately they didn't have any information to give me that I didn't already have, but I did have info for them that they were thrilled to have.
I walked the bridges that Great Grampy would have walked to go to work, and made sure Mah was on the phone for the walk, I wanted her to make the journey through time with me. the first family making the walk with the intent of their memory, not just to walk over the bridge with no intent other then to get to the other side. This upcoming spring I want Mah to actually walk it with me, it would mean a lot and something I'd treasure and never forget.
I'm still searching for the final resting place of great Grammy and Grampy in St Michael's, still no luck, so as of now, we have just the cemetery, but no location IN it.
Anyway Dad. That's the update for now.
I Love and Miss you Forever and a Day.
