The Telson kids

Dear Laurie,

My son went to visit Elsie in New York a couple of years ago. I flew to New York twice to visit Elaine in the hospital. Even there she was a force of nature, her spirit was strong and vibrant. She brought life energy to the place in a tangible way. My father accompanied me the second time. Special people - all three of them. A few years before he died, I got to spend a few good days with Ti Bob.

I wish you a wonderful visit with Elsie. Sylvie is in DC along with a number of other close cousins who also appear in that picture. These are others who share our same great and great, great grandfather. Where is your father in the family photo? Do you know what year it was taken? I am trying to find more information on Marcel who settled in Tennessee. I would love to talk with you. Please do write to me if you would like to stay in touch.

Kind Regards,
