To paraphrase a baseball movie: If you write it, they will come.

Boxing Day at last!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas like the Arther Myers’ family back in the 50s.

Arther and Rose 2

I wonder how my readers managed to survive that long before seeing these beautiful pictures Jason has shared with me of Arther Myers’ and Rosealina Larose’s family.

Happy people will forever live in our hearts. 

This is why I write so much about them even if I am not closely related to them.

One reader commented in December:

If you write it, they will come.

I could not have said it better.

These pictures were taking on Chrismas Eve or on Christmas Day. Look at the Christmas tree on the right of Rosealina.

Arther and Rose 4

Rosealina is wearing the same dress and Arther has the same tie on this picture.

Arther and Rose 2

Merry Christmas!

I wonder which Christmas it was? Maybe there’s a caption at the back.

Here it’s easy to date this picture.

Arther and Rose 1

50 years after

Arther and Rosealina married on April 22, 1907, so this picture was taken on April 22, 1957, give or take a few days.

Here’s a picture where Rosealina is a little more serious and looks a little younger.

Arther and Rose 5

Arther looks like the quiet type.

Old pictures talk a lot you know.

This is why they are so important to keep them. They remind us of people we loved so much when they are not around anymore.

Arther died on August 4th, 1959. Rosealina rejoined him on June 21, 1969. I am sure they had a happy life and had happy beautiful children.

This is what I found.

    Joseph Arther Hormidas Myers 1908-1986
    Alice Sophrinie Myers 1910-1999
    Paul A. Myers 1912-1979
    Irene Myers 1916-1999
    Beatrice Rose Myers 1919-2010
    Ernest Edward Myers 1921-1983
    Agnes B. Myers  1925-

Some are seen on this picture taken on the same Christmas day. Same tie, same dress, same happy people.

Arther and Rose 3      Merry Christmas everyone!
