|Come look with me inside this drawer
In this box I've often seen
The pictures black and white
Faces proud, still, and serene.
I wish I knew the people
These strangers in the box.
Their names and all their memories
Are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time
To tell who,what, where, and when?
These faces of my heritage
Would come to life again.
Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories
Someday to be put away?
Take time to save your stories,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks
Or someday you and yours
Could be strangers in a box.

* ANNE MARIE CONWAY
nee ( MacKAY )
born: Feb. 17, 1871 died: Mar. 31, 1928
John and Annie Conway were married Sept. 26, 1890 in Arnprior Ontario and moved to Sault Ste.Marie, Ontario, Canada in the 1890ís and started a family.
If John and Annie had not fallen in love and married, all the people listed on this family history and any future generations would never have been born. Quite an accomplishment! Quite a family!
God certainly blessed them.
There are hundreds of us and we are all one FAMILY !!!!!
