Memories of our Father and Mother

I have such good memories of our beautiful mother and handsome father, Days and nights of growing up with them. We lived in beautiful houses, the Magnolia house, the Chopin house and the Lorne Park house, Grandma Elfrieda our very virtuous and good grandmother came to live with us, She was a beautiful woman with silver white hair styled in a french role. She cooked and sewed for us, styled and sewed my grade eight graduation dress, my secondary school dress, I always had a selection of beautiful clothes, she knitted me a beautiful nordic sweater. For my birthday one year she knitted me a sailor like sweater and sewed a beautiful flared skirt. Father brought mother and I a coat,sweater and skirt one year, quite beautiful and a navy blue dress with a rainbow collar. He was the director of a fashion company in the city of Toronto Mother was an executive controller for a handsome builder of subdivision houses, Summers we would go to the cottage together, our brother Tom would stay at his friend Eric's place, When I married my husband Walter and had two beautiful children Kirk and Erik, We went to the Limetree Beach resort in Sarasota, Florida with my sister Antje and my parents. MY divorced years I lived in our parents' beautiful spacious house with my children and sister, They were such beautiful and handsome parents and kind to us all, I will always remember them with love and friendship, Their friendship continued and we went to visit my sister Antje and her children and husband at their beautiful house. We visited my brother Tom his children and wife Gail at their house, They got married at Pioneer village. i was a bridesmaid, They drove in a horse drawn carriage, Tom wore a tuxedo and Gail wore a very beautiful wedding gown. My sister Antje was a pretty bridesmaid at their wedding, She is very happily married now to Michael and has two beautiful and handsome children Esme and Evan. Our parents blessed us with friendship and kindness, We are all truly thankful to the Lord , our God. Author:Gwen von Erlach Schutz
