I don't exactly know why I'm doing this, but here I am.
All my life I've been told "you should write a book".......well this isn't a book, but I'm writing!
Allow me to tell you something about myself.
I was born in Orangeville, Ontario 64 years ago.
My father was Forbes Walkey, my mother was Dorothy Jones Walkey.
Unfortunately, both of my parents died in their early 60's and I miss them both but especially my Mom.
I have one sister, Lynda Mills, who is my life's blood. I love her more and more everyday.
My sister has 4 daughters, Natalie, Lisa, Kim and Stacey. These girls are my beloved nieces and the only children who have been as close as my own children you can possibly get.
Natalie has a daughter Charly.
Lisa has a son, Taylor and a daughter Brett.
Kim has two sons, Ben and Zachary and a daughter Emily.
Stacey, is like her Aunt and has no children of her own.
More about this part of the family later.......
During our young life, we were raised in Toronto at Lansdowne and Bloor, not a good neighbourhood now, but back then it was a good, ethnic (Italian mainly), family neighbourhood.
When I was 10 and my sister 14, our Mom went out on her own and bought a small house. She had had enough of living with Nanny. Ever grateful for the help but wanting to raise her children herself, her own way.
THANK YOU MOM!!!!!
This would be the start of a new life for us all..............to be continued.............
