I spoke with Gloria yesterday and her youngest brother Hampton died this month. He lived and is buried in Margaree Forks Cape Breton.

Hampton was one of my childhood heroes mainly due to the fact he was always laughing at what others would scold me for… he drove a VW Beetle Bug and I pulled the emergency brake while we were driving from Margaree one winter; which sent his car into a spin. I can still hear him laughing when he told his family about it. I was 3 and this is one of my earliest memories.

His father Poppy died the same year as my mother when I was 11…

They were all my heroes!
