I met Jenny for the first time when my family (my parents and my sister) went on a trip to BC in the summer of 1966. Uncle Ray lived on a large rural property near the town of Hope. Jenny and her brother Leo had a huge yard in which to play, took a bus to school, and every window of their home featured views of the Cascade Mountains. It was all so different from the urban life my sister Marianne and I knew in the northern Ontario mining town of Timmins.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been two years since Jenny passed away. Rest in peace, my cousin.
