WORDLESS WEDNESDAY - 1947
Grandma & Grampa Gillespie, with their youngest grandchildren (from their youngest son who married late!). I'm sitting in Grandma's lap, my sister Leita in the middle, and brother Jake on Grampa's lap. Jake's birthday is only 2 days after Grampa's, and he's named for him as well.
We're sitting on the porch of their retirement cottage in Deep Cove (North Vancouver BC), named Kil-Kare... which means exactly that! I used to think it was an Irish place or words, but it's in the category of 'gone-fishin'.
This photo is in the photo albums that Mom made for us kids years ago, with her typed details on each photo.
Family, friends, and others - I hope you enjoy these pages about our ancestors and their lives. Genealogy has become somewhat of an obsession, more than a hobby, and definitely a wonderful mystery to dig into and discover. Enjoy my writing, and contact me at celia.winky at gmail dot com if you have anything to add to the stories. ... Celia Lewis
