Papa’s World – Memory of GIGI and family vacations.

GIGI – Sherry’s mother – Barb

Many times when her father was alive – we would go on vacation with them –

then when he passed away – we continued taking GIGI with us where ever we went.

The grandchildren all loved their GIGI – and today – the grandkids call Sherry – MORMOR – Swede for MOTHERS – MOTHER

You see GIGI ( Barb) was Swede through and through – her mother was born in Sweden.

In Mount Jewett where they lived – was an early Swedish settlement from immigrants.

The men in 1886 built a replicant of an eight-sided Swedish church – and the one in Sweden still stands as does the one called Mount Nebo in Mount Jewett – in NWPA!

Every year in that little town in NWPA – a Swedish festival is held.

Both Barb and Bill at one time were the king and queen of that festival.

Memories of GIGI for the grandkids was she was always laughing – smiling – red cheeks –

Holding her hand as they walked or climbing up and sitting beside her.

Learning how to sing a song in Swedish and singing it to her.

Those are memories not lost – but retained in our minds.

GIGI is ever there watching over us.

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – where memories come alive and live on.
