Hi Larissa,

I came across this message while searching for Gus and Brady Schill.

Your grandfather Herbert was my mother's twin brother. (Freda).

His other siblings were Erna, Gust, Ella, Arnold, Hilda, and I think that was all.

I am 1 year older than your father was and we shared a house together with Brady in Edmonton in 1976. They had the upstairs and I had the downstairs. We had a big fight and I never saw him again, and then I heard he had a terrible accident involving a train, and then I heard years later that he had died.

Your uncle Brady I think lives close to me but I have not seen him since the 70s as well.

As far as I know, out of your father's siblings only my mom, Freda, and her younger sister Hilda are still alive. My mom lives in Princeton, B.C. alone since her 2nd husband died in 2007, and as far as I know Hilda still lives in Ft. St. John, B.C. where her husband Al has a gravel truck business that is now run by their son Brent.

My brother Gary also committed suicide in the year 1999, and my sister Sandra is married and lives in Utah. USA.

I have been married for almost 19 years and have a 12 year old daughter Jasmin.

I hope this letter reaches you in good health. If you have any questions I will try to answer them.

take care,

Ralph Schweitzer

Salmon Arm, B.C.
