Another Anniversary – 41 Years!

I was delighted when an old Army friend of my brother, John, contacted me with several photos he took or had taken when they both trained together in Kapooka. I especially treasure this one, which is how I remember my brother, together with his lovely fiancée, Lyn. Lyn was also my dear friend throughout my school years and beyond, and my much-loved sister-in-law.

Another dear friend from our school years has recently contacted me when she happened upon an earlier blog postings of mine on 12th June. What a joy it has been to be in touch with her again, both for our shared memories of John and Lyn, and sharing our lives from the last 40 years. Amazing!

Together with another Army friend of John's who served with him in Vietnam, these communications and the people behind them have been and are such a blessing to me. Now I am past all the busy years of child raising and caring for elderly parents, my mind goes more and more to my brother, family and friends.

I hope for more communications in the future. This is the human side of modern-day technology at its best!
