    Mim, Jim & Joyce played a big part in my Linwood childhood. Id go with my dad to winterize the cottage & open it up & clean it in the spring. Every year they brought me gift from Florida & gave me $20 US, which i saved all summer for the Fall Fair in Antigonish. Daily, all summer, we would drop in on our way for a swim & were welcomed, each day, the same as the first. Thinking back, there must have been a time when they were sick of seeing our faces at the door…sometimes we had lunch, sometimes played games, were taught to play bridge & sometimes went back in the evening when our parents visited. We would cheerfully walk home up the Cape Jack Road among the fireflys as the day ended, only to head back down the road the next morning. I remember the sweet tinkle of the mint green shell chime that hung on the archway between the kitchen & living room. I bought one similar for my cottage & only hang it out on days with low wind so it will make the ‘proper tinkle” that always reminds me of the little cottage & The McCues’. I will miss shopping for the “Greetings from Canada” Christmas card that I sent to Joyce annually with the local news. Joyce was such a beautiful person, she had a wonderful life & great faith. I’m sure there was a fine celebration when she entered the pearly gates to the Eternal reward she had prayed for all of her life. God love her & bless her. We will not forget Joyce or the McCues’!
