The setting was Pointe-du-Lac (west side of Trois Rivieres, Quebec), I was sitting next to my Grandmother Laquerre (whom I miss very much even to this day!).  Sharon (to my right) and I were now announcing that she was pregnant.  We were later to determine that this was Matthew.

Then Sharon gave birth

We lived at the Uplands military base at that time. I would imagine that this is on Dakota Drive where we lived.

My sister Pauline (to whom I am godfather) would be the one to be the godmother for Matthew and Roger Crotty, Sharon's brother-in-law would be the godfather.

This was my first dog-SABRE and he loved Matthew.

I tried to teach him to eat healthy and here we were eating celery

I tried feeding him since he fell asleep so often at other meal times.

We must have done something right since here hee was on his first birthday.

I would guess here and say that we had now moved to Victoria where I was going to university at Royal Roads Military College

Is this where he got his love of music from???

Here we jump to 1984 and we are located behind our townhome in Wainwright Alberta. Sharon was now pregnant for Thomas.  Matthew is playing with Kathryn, his sister.

Sorry Matthew, but you looked so cute!

You even won a trophy playing hockey in Wainwright
