Dear Joy's Family
Joy and Vern were a lovely couple and Murray and I enjoyed their company, especially at Legion events. Joy had many stories about living in England and coming to Canada as a young married woman.
To Joy's family...I remember Vern and Joy very well from years gone by. Joy carried on after her dear Vern passed away but I have such nice memories of both of them. What a handsome couple they were. One year when I was very involved with the Vets in Milton, my husband David and I were down in Niagara on the Lake before Remembrance Day. We were wearing our poppies and went to a winery called, if memory serves me right, Marynissen Wineries. The young lady who cashed us out commented on our poppies, and told us her Grandad was a Veteran.Of course I asked where he lived and when she said Milton I asked his name and could proudly say I knew Vern very well. The young lady was delighted and Vern and Joy even more so when I relayed the story. My memories are wonderful of your parents, as I am sure yours are. Sincerely, Laurie MacNab.
