Part 3 - Early Life in Canada and Birth of the Children
Part 4 - Mamma finishes her Memoirs
I've enjoyed bringing Mamma's story to my website and I suspect I'll be adding more. While talking to my mom the other day, she mentioned I'd be getting a package in the mail soon from her sister, Miriam with more info. Yay!
I'll post more as I get it. Meanwhile, I'll leave you with a 4 generation photo taken back in 1987 when we had a family reunion on the farm on the occasion of Taimi's visit from overseas.

Every time I see the Monkshood flower, I remember this patch of them beside Mamma's door. Some of my best times were spent sitting on the bench with Pappa and Mamma in the mornings.
What about you? What was your favourite time on the farm?
