I can't believe it has been a month since my last post.
When we retuned home from our cross Canada vacation there was a parcel waiting for us from Herman. He had seen in one of our holiday posts, that we had visited Banff, in the Rockies. Seeing that reminded him of an old story. I would like him to tell the story, as it is his to tell. But in brief, His Grandmother in Holland, was given this spoon from Banff by a Canadian soldier at the end of the war. That was almost 65 yers ago!
She in turn left the spoon to her beloved grandson Herman. After reading about our visit to Banff, Herman sent the spoon to Keith and I to enjoy. We were both deeply touched to be sent something so precious. I know that for myself, how dearly I cherish the items that I have that once belonged to my grandmother. Such a wonderful story to accompany this spoon. I wonder if that young soldier is still alive?
Thank you Herman for this generous gift. Such a special momento of our holiday and of your friendship!
