Robin, I do remember your mother, Joan, and Bud Russell coming to Worcester to visit. I recall their visits very clearly because Narcisus, your grandmother?, did not seem to care very much for me and I made every effort to stay clear. Bud, I loved to see him. My father was estranged and I just enjoyed having a male figure pay attention to me. I remember we would talk about traveling and that he had wanderlust, a trait I have had since I was 16. Just a nice man. I reside in Boston and Colorado.
I believe Narcisus was married to my grandmother's brother. I took a trip up to Prince Edward Island several years ago and actually found the Costello Homestead in a place called Bear River. My Grandmother, Kit, talked often about going up there to visit. It is now owned by someone in NY and only the foundation was left.
I am glad u wrote and write back at your convenience. Mike
