Dear Marion:
It was sad to hear of Gilbert’s passing. I remember fondly, when I was a child of the both of you at Gibbie and Jean’s cottage on 1st. Peninsula. I have a number of pictures of those times. I was so excited when he asked to marry you and we waited for you to come down the road to the cottage and I could start the wind-up record player and play the wedding song for you. Take care. All the best.
