Due to the machinations of the second world war, my father-in-law was separated from his only brother for decades. My father-in-law emigrated to Canada, and his brother Rudy ended up in Archangelsk in the north of the Soviet Union. Now, a generation, his only son, Igor and grandson Arthur are able to pick up family ties that were long lost.

He is my wife's only cousin.

P.S. They really like the warm waters of Lake Erie.

Me too. The only one around who speaks Russian is my father-in-law, who was overjoyed at the opportunity to visit with his only nephew. Igor and I just did a lot of pointing and nodding. He likes morojna. (my phonetic rendition of "ice cream")

Arthur is a firecracker in any language. :-)

Hi Tom,

Your family is certainly blessed to have the opportunity to bring together the lost connection. In any language, the warmth of family together cannot be translated.

Regards,

Nadia
