Family birthdays and remembrances

My husband was born on his mother's birthday.

What a birthday present!!

Yesterday, the 29th of January, was their birthday.

His mum, Linda Marjory Taylor, nee Riley, would have been 99 years old.

We've recently moved away from our home area and I'm sure my husband really missed his regular

visit to the cemetery to "have a drink with Mum".

You are always in our thoughts Mum

Linda Marjory Taylor (nee Riley) 1914-2005
youngest daughter of William (Bill) Riley and Sarah nee Young of Korweinguboora.


  1. Pleased to hear from you Kerryn.

  2. An amazing lot of coincidental dates, Kerryn... sometimes, it seems family members are linked by more than blood. Nice to have you post.

  3. What a day!!! A very happy birthday to all. Hope your move went well Kerryn and you're all settled in and "as snug as a bug in a rug". Cheers, Catherine.

  4. Isn't it weird how birthdays run in families? Coincidence or self-selection I've often wondered. Similarly with first names. Glad you've popped in with a post.
