Heather: Oh, a little bit of sugar is O.K. How do you feel about going to Alpine Nursing Home for a respite week?

Audrey: I’ll be happy to be there for a week. It will be fun! I’ll be with Margie. We were always the best of friends. She was married to Stuart, Dad’s older brother. We do not know about Dad’s other brother Robert’s wife, Gladys. She had a bad spell and gave away her land to some creep. Maybe she is dead now. We do not know. Robert, he was sick and too fat and died young. Robert used to go hunting and he would talk with your father. Dad’s oldest brother Donald was great! Your Dad always loved his oldest brother Donald the best. Donald was always good to Dad – when Dad was a kid and all Dad’s life.

Heather: How did you feel about Dad being so quiet?

Audrey: He always enjoyed a joke and laughed a little, but he was very quiet. He was a quiet man and I was talkative. When I was first married, he never said a word and I gabbed all the time. He would sit in his chair and fall asleep. I’d go to bed and let him stay there. He was so tired from his work.

He liked Gladys and Catherine. Ruth was working then and we didn’t see her so much, but she was very nice and Dad thought the world of her also. Ruth is a great studier.
