My father and his twin sister were many years younger than their older siblings. Their oldest sister married John Hines, a barber in Brockville. They had 4 children, a son, who died about 50 years ago, and 3 daughters - Eva, Doris and Ruby. Eva & Doris married and remained in Brockville, while Ruby spent her married life in Pembroke. Whenever they were together, there was a lot of laughter. They were a lot of fun to be around. I liked them a lot.
Ruby died first, about 15 years ago. I made sure that Eva & Doris were at our older daughter Kelly's wedding in 2006. Eva was quite frail and Doris wasn't sure where she was - but I'm glad they made it. Eva died three years ago; Doris on December 30, 2012. A bit of my family now survives only in memories and photographs - soon it will only be photos.
Below is a photo from 1991 of exactly how I remember my cousins - Eva Fowler, Doris McCaw/Parkin and Ruby Fisher.
