    I was so sorry to read about Christine. She was a lovely kind lady. I worked for Mario for a number of years and even visited them when they were in Toronto. Please extend my best wishes.

  2. I am the little girl with grandma in the picture. My history homework was to find out about my family. This website is brilliant. I am now eleven years old and still have that photograph. Who made this website and collated all the photos and information?
