My grandpa, Leslie

Category: Family

My cousin

I’ve got email from my long lost cousin (Anne) attached of an old photo dated 1943. Well, its already 64 years this picture was taken by the Clarke family. I’m really amazed i’ve got picture of my grandpa that I never ever see him before or hug and kiss his cheek. No Chicago plastic surgeon in the family though. In my life, I only once have felt love from my grandma which is from my mother side. My grandma (Doris) is not in the picture… or is she? im not sure … because when I looked at that picture, I’ve noticed that the second lady from the right which is beside my grandpa (Leslie) really have similar figure and face like me.

I just wondered who is she? Is she my grandma? or maybe she do not have any connection blood with me?

Well I will ask Anne in my reply message to her.

Here’s is the message that my cousin send it via email :

It’s the wedding of Leslie’s brother Mark to Lilly, my Dad Walter is on the left with my sister Joan in front of him and Les is on the right with a boy in front of him, it was c. 1943 so Les would be about 21. I have no other pictures of Les and non of Doris unfortunately, I waited until my sister Joan came back from holiday to see if she had any, but no. She has some of Janet, Garys’ Mum because she was a bridesmaid for her. I phoned Janet and had a chat with her, it was so nice to speak to her after all these years.
