I just saw your post on Ancestry.com. Here it is 2013, and you wrote that 10 years ago. I grew up with your mom, we were first cousins, our fathers were brothers. We lived in Rochester, so I saw your mom mostly on Sundays when we would visit our grandparents on West Academy Street. I did not see your mother very much as an adult, although I remember being there in Albion after the accident. I hope in these ten years you have been able to talk with family (your aunts and uncles) to learn more about your mom. I remember her as so pretty and lots of fun to be with. We would spend hours playing outside in the garden, and I remember she had a playhouse in the yard, may have been when she lived in Lyndonville, I am not sure.
I just wanted to let you know there is family out there! I have two daughters and two sons - so we are all your cousins.. I may have some pictures of your mom when she was little you can have..write back if you want them..
