  • Great uncle Maurice I never met you and my father never aswell. Your sister was my grandmother and the most beautiful soul. She was very proud of you. We knew who you were with your photo proudly hung on her wall. She named my uncle after you. We will meet again x Your great niece Rachel Pelo (Langdon)
