Hi Mag (or Margaret). I just wanted to say that you look just like my Aunt Anne Ramer (probably because she's your cousin). You are in my family book (Reesor). It's kind of neat because I used to watch Road to Avonlea when I was little and my dad told me that my favorite character was my relative.


Hi Monica,

I know I have Reesor and Ramer cousins all over the place but I didn't know I had a twin! I'd love to meet Aunt Anne one day. When's the next family reunion?
