View Full Version : Public Thank You to Blue Eyes

Blue Eyes went a few blocks from her home and took some photos of my father's birth home and my birth home in Lewisham. I had never seen pics before and I was thrilled to receive them. The photos were perfect and made me feel a deeper connection to those addresses. My father was born and raised on Summerfied St and lived there until he got married. My parents lived at 83 Wellmeadow Rd from the beginning of WW2 until we emigrated in 1952. I was only 3 when we left. I never had the opportunity on my English visits to go and see these homes.

So |hug||hug|Julie. Your kindness to a perfect stranger is truly heartening and I will endeavour to pass on that kindness to another stranger.

Our B-G forum is truly blessed with people such as yourself. What seems a tiny effort can really cheer a body!

Hear,Hear. Isn't that how life should be? It seems to be carried thro' on this Forum.

cheers Wendy

That's great Vanessa:) What a thrill to see where your Dad lived and where you were born!!

I received a similar gesture( cemetary pics and baptisim records) from someone on this forum awhile ago and couldn't thank them enough and more recently a distant cousin found on GR who lives in Godmanchester went out and took pictures of where my gr.grandparents lived in the 1800's. What a thrill for those of us who can't get there in person!

I'm sure that one of these days we will have the opportunity to pass on the favour.

Brilliant! Well done to Blue Eyes for taking the time to do that - and how nice to be able to see your old home Vanessa!

That is so lovely, Vanessa.

Julie (Blue Eyes) you are a star! |hug|

A thread like this is a joy :)

It makes all the odd moans, groans, spats and differences that we have slink off into the background.

Caring and sharing is what we do well
