Missing You Grandpa

William Ronald Hamilton was born on January 19th, 1915 in Rossburn, Manitoba. To family and friends he was known as “Ron” due to the fact that his first and middle name were mistakenly reversed on his birth certificate. I knew him as Grandpa Hamilton, my father’s father.

Neighbourly Neighbours

“There are too many homeless people in this neighbourhood.” Or so said the long time resident across the street from where I live.
