Since 1983, there have been some changes III our lives. Maurice retired from the Pool Insurance Co. in 1986. We kept quite active for a few years, but ill health and age have slowed us down considerably. Now, our seven grand­ children and one great grandchild are the greatest joy of our lives. They all live in Alberta, so we make several trips there each summer and at Christmas. They travel here when work permits it.
