To the Woodward, Hadrill, and Delo clan,
Please accept Henry's and my sincere sympathy in your loss of my cousin, Barb. She was a really nice person. I was sorry not to know her better. I was five years younger than her. So if I was visiting Auntie May and Uncle Jack, she was on her way out with friends or on a date. She was always pleasant and happy. Then very occasionally Mum and I would drop in on her at the store and have a chat.
Ruth and Andrew Swan were my parents. Morley is my oldest living brother. He lives in Westmount. Richard was the eldest, but he passed away in 1975. They were between Joan and Barb. I understand they all had whooping cough together at Nanna's cottage, Windrift, at Lakeside. My parents, Auntie May, and Uncle Jack took turns running up to look after them every time they heard someone whoop. That was before my time, but I heard about it.
My brother, Chris, is a year older than me and lives in Victoria. He is preparing to move to a senior's residence as I write. Then Ruth was born a few years after the war, Dad was away from 1939 until 1945.
We lived at 310 Grosvenor Avenue - just over the back fence from the Delo family. Ross and I were in the same class at King's School in Grade 1 until Grade 3, i.e. from Sept /43 until June /47. Then in 1969 I met him again. He was a policeman by then. He returned my lost son, Peter (aged 4) to me. I was visiting my parents for one day and night. Peter's older sister and brother were annoying him as they played in the back yard. So he left Mum and Dad's, deciding he would return to New Brunswick. After walking uphill, almost to the boulevard, he asked an older boy to turn him in. That's how Ross got to bring him back.
Uncle Jack had a special relationship with me. In those days husbands did not stay with their wives during labour. So Uncle Jack drove Dad down to see his new baby after I was born. The nurse assumed Uncle Jack was the grandfather. That tickled his fancy. Long after he had stopped attending social functions, because of his heart condition, he came to my wedding. Perhaps he wanted to see me in Cardie's wedding dress. It was a beautiful gown.
I knew Cardie best. She and Art would come out to visit at our cottage in Rivière Beaudette for the weekend. We all had a great time together. Art would barbecue sometimes.
I have a picture taken in 1979 of the Harrison sisters. You may have seen it. There's Aunti May, Auntie Eddie, Cardie, and my mother- your Auntie Ruth. The little girls are the daughters of my sister, Ruth. Kim is the older one and Les is in the high chair.
By the way, I live in Cobourg. I heard Diane was in Tweed. That is not too far from me - maybe an hour and a half. You are all welcome to email or visit us. I live just up the street from the lake.. we have a wonderful view.
As you can see, I am not very good with technology.
My regrets over Barb again.
Love,
Judy Knight
