Bachelor Uncle

timber splittersI am late with my prompt this week as I was dithering about who to choose as my subject. Then I remembered when researching my great grandfather Charles Alfred Shephard I came across a sad story of his younger brother Alexander Shephard. He died when he was only 19 years old and I have found very little about him except how he died. For that reason, I decided that I would try to find out a bit more and have written up his story to include in my blog. Click here if you would like to read it.

I have finished writing my grandmother’s story. It has not been easy and I have shed many tears in the process. I know that I carry part of her in me and I am so thankful for the wonderful father that I have because of her. So Sarah, this is for you – I hope you can look down on me and at least smile a little and say “yes that will do”. To read more about Sarah click here
