Condolence & Memory Journal

Sorry for your loss . I've always carried warm and fond memories of Dora Belle and Walter. It was just recently that I reread a letter Dora had addressed to me when my Dad passed away in 2000. Glenn Pate ( Mahone Bay Nova Scotia ) son of John Pate and grandson to Florence .

I know Dora Belle was our cousin, but I always called her Aunt Dora Belle. I will never forget the visits we had with all of you. I became so attached to Claudia. Each time you were ready to go back to Boston, I would run upstairs & cry my heart out watching you all drive away. I remember Blair's accident here in N.B. He couldn't understand why there was ditches. Lol
He was hurt & shook up at the time but Maggie took great care of him until he could go back home. Your mom called to thank her for taking care of her son. What a sweetheart. I will forever remember her beautiful smile. My girls will never eat tractor wheel donuts without thinking of their totally cool cousin Blair!
With all our love
Judy, Tanya & Jennifer

For as long as I remember I have had a cousin Belle! I first heard of my American cousin from my mom, Margaret, she was Belles aunt and greatest supporter! I remember the stories of how my aunt Lizzie had come home to care for her mom and brothers who were very sick. Stories of how the family found out via a phone call ( a call that came to the neighbours because there was only one phone in the area ) that Lizzie had died shortly after returning home. My mom tried to keep in touch with Belle and somehow did. I remember the first visit to Grandma's that she made when I was old enough to know "Belle" was coming home! She and Walley and their family of 4 at that time, came to Bathurst and they blended right in with all the cousins that , I am sure over whelmed all of them. That smile won us all over! She continued to stay in touch with my mom over the years and when my mom passed away, she kept in touch with me, not often but enough for us to both say I love you at the end of a letter that kept us both up dated on what was happening in the families. She had the easier letter, because she only had her 5 children to report on..I, on the other hand had 9 families which each had on average 12 children. The letters came mostly at Christmas, and this year, due to neglect on my side, there was no letter. For this I am truly sorry! I will forever keep you in my heart, my beautiful American cousin! I love you!..One of many of your Canadian cousins...Flora
