My mother-in-law has just sold her home in Markdale, Ont. Her father had purchased the home in 1920 and it has been in the family for 92 years.
Annually, our family would travel to meet gramma and grampa, and it was always to the family home.
Their cousins from Waterloo and Inglewood joined our sons at Markdale, and the kids would play on the back lawn. We would hold family reunions there every other year and every few years, we would gather for the annual family photograph.
