Here is your comment, "Terry, it doesn't seem like we lost David 11 years ago."
You know I guess we really haven't lost him, Betty, but we are lost without him. It is such a comfort that we know we will see him one day in heaven.
I have put this song in here because it has been a real comfort to me today and as I listened to it , I thought about David . Where he is now, there is all kinds of singing like this going on!
This is the first picture we have of when the Golden family of seven turned into a family of eight.
David Brian Golden was born in my beloved Manitoba.
As you can see by this picture, I appear really grouchy and so I should be!
Every time a baby was born in our family, Betty took right over like the mother hen that she is!
David is looking at her with adoring eyes!
These are the two baby Goldens. Karen Dianne Golden was born about two years after David, also, in the most beautiful province of Manitoba.
David on vacation with the family, the year Dad Golden packed the car with kids and drove them hundreds of miles to visit relatives in Welland, St. Catharine's and Dunnville, Ontario.
Dad Golden was a very brave and patient man to do this!
Gracey and David greeting Dad Golden after his hard day of work being a fireman.
In those days Dad Golden always fussed when we wanted to take his picture.
I had to pay him two dollars to take this photo with the Browny camera that I had swiped from him and Mom Golden, but I see after all these years that it was well worth it!
Gary loved his little brother David but as you can see here, he was forever teasing him.
Gail is looking very concerned about her baby brother.
Ha!..This is David with his little girl friend. In the background you can see the little white trailer where the children in the neighborhood could go on a Friday evening to listen to stories from the Bible.
This is Gail and David. These two children were very close.
To his dying day David worshiped the ground that Gail walked on even though she was living in Toronto by that time.
You see, David was born after her and he was her baby brother.
David all dressed up for Sunday School!
This is the last picture of the Golden family in Manitoba.
It was taken by the couple that used to drive us every week 33 miles to Sunday School.
David was a wee little gentleman here.
By this time Betty had moved to Trenton Ontario.
We all missed her and were looking forward to seeing her again.
David acting up for the camera!
By this time the family photographer had graduated to a 126 camera....never was it better than the 620 Browny camera!
The photos get discoloured with age!
I mean just look at that David!
He looks like a little tadpole!
Sometimes that David could be a pain..Ha!!
This is David with HIS little sister, Karen....at the beach!
This was in Ottawa where the family now lived at the air force base.
Although David always got along well with his baby sister, it never took him long to cozy up to Gail!
Mom Golden was about 38 years old in this picture!
The four babies in the Golden family...Gracey, Gail, Karen and David.
Who else but these two partners in crime, David and Gail!
This is one of five pictures that we have of the whole family together.
With so many children, it is a rare thing to have them all in one spot at one time! This picture was taken at Gracey's wedding. Her husband Eric Robert took it.
Eric is with David in heaven.
When David was 33 years old he became a Christian and this beautiful song so reminds me of David, that I thought that I would put it on here.
I think that I will do one more post about David Brian with some pictures of him when he was older and I will write a little summary of his life.
I thank you one and all for your most kind comments. They have been a great comfort and I am going to print them out for Mom and Dad Golden..God bless you all...Love Terry
