|Auntie Kay - Greta Kathleen Stirling|
My cousin Sarah (Sally) Stirling is the keeper of the family tree that my Uncle Clarence (her grandfather) created. She emailed me some info that detailed her grandmother's (my Auntie Kay) family roots. It is 100% in keeping with the records that are online. Clarence passed away in 1994 at the age of 90. Here are some of his notes - "Archie Campbell (1804-1878) was born on Kilmory Ross Farm, Parish of North Knapdale, Argyllshire, Scotland. He came to Canada with his parents in 1830.... He married Sarah (Sally) Campbell. They had six sons and three daughters."

This will be my 8th Mother's Day as an orphan. The more time that passes, I get a clearer understanding of my mother's life and have the objectivity to see her as a person. This is a picture of her in 1947 looking very glam, IMHO. It was before she married and had four kids! She was the Valedictorian at her nursing school and a keen student. She and my dad were married until my father passed away in 2003. I used to look forward to our long phone conversations on Mother's Day and other days, too.
