Six months later, my family moved to the village of Watford, Ontario; until I turned 13 years old. Then we all moved to Penticton, BC.
Sadly, on May 5th, 1997 my father, George passed away at Haven Hill Retirement Centre. And my mother, Lillian passed away on April 9th, 1999 in her home. Both sets of grandparents have died, Grandma Mae Brown & Gran Helen Pickrell in 1982, also Grandpa Winston in 1984, and Granddad James Pickrell in October 28, 1993.
I have a younger brother John and Mary my aunt on mom's side of the family. All my relatives on my dad's side of the family are in Ontario.
