A date when I especially think of my sister Ruth who passed away last September.  She was born in 1926 so today would have been her 92nd birthday.  I think of her every day but today especially.  Good memories.  Following are a few pictures taken over the years.

There’s A Bright Star Shining In The East September 28, 2017

Filed under: Family,Family history — Janet @ 1:55 pm

When I get up these dark September mornings and take my seat at the computer I look out to see a lone bright star shining in the East.  I like to think this is a message from my dear sister Ruth who passed just a few days ago.  She is shining down on us – twinkling – all is well.  She is at rest, in peace.  And slowly dawn breaks.  Another beautiful sunrise.

Among Ruth’s many interests she loved gardening, particularly flowers.  So this photo taken on the side porch is most appropriate.

45 Years On August 2, 2017

2017_07_31_09_20_13

I’m trying to scan a postcard and I keep getting it saved as pdf.  Frustrating.  It’s a postcard which I wrote 45 years ago and it didn’t reach its destination.  I didn’t have the latest postal address for my sister.  Her RFD number had been changed to a road address.    So the card was returned to me in St. Lucia.  We were new to the island but the postal service found us easily.  It was a small island!

If you click on the reference given above you can see the card of sailing near The Pitons in Soufriere in St Lucia West Indies.  And what I wrote is found below.
