Dear Helen - Really good to hear from you. I have offten wondered where Aunt Dawn was living in the US, especially after I moved to Canada in 1969. Aunt Dawn probably remembers me as a small boy, collecting rocks in Ravenscar, when we spent the summers with grandma France. I continue to do this, and have been teaching geology at Laurentian University, in Sudbury Ontario since 1981. My older brother (Mervyn) and his second wife (Sue) now live in Herstmonceux in Sussex UK. My younger brother (Patrick) lives near Hastings, and my sister Tania lives in Eastbourne. My Father (Ian) retired to Cornwall, and remarried in 1978. He and his wife (Anne)had two sons (Martyn and Kris - 38 and 40 yrs younger than me!). My dad died last year at the age of 89. I was married in 1972 to Anne (not the same one) and have two children. My son Tristan (b. 1976) teaches Biology at Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo ON. He and his wife Natasha spent four years in Santa Barbara CA, where Tristan was doing a post Doc. They have a US-born son (Griffin) who is now 3.5 years old. My daughter Siobhan (b. 1978) now lives in Vancouver, where she lives with her husband Chris (a primary/elementary school teacher). Siobhan is working in Marketing/Communicaions for a non-profit Art Organization.

We would love to hear from your mother, please send me contact details to so that I can contact her. It is great to here from a long-lost cousin, and would love to hear about your family too

Best Wishes Darrel
