I was sad to hear about your mothers passing. Jennie will be missed by all.
I remember when I was really young and visiting Mrs. Jose Power with my Dad, she mentioned she had been a teacher on Colinet Island. She said my Dad and Jennie were in her class. She said because they were so young they would fall asleep so she would put them in in a trunk in her classroom together for a nap. I thought this was such a sweet little story. RIP 🙏
