My family

Leontine

Standard


Leontine lived with my Nana in Sri Lanka and looked after her. She did the cooking and cleaning, among other things. I remember her taking me for a walk along the beach when I was about 3 years old. My Dad and uncles would take it in turns going back to Sri Lanka to check on Nana and Leontine throughout the years. She never forgot our birthdays and would always send a card.

My Dad

Standard

My Dad, as he looked back then. I remember him wearing suits with bell bottom pants. He did a lot of work with the Vietnamese refugees. He taught them English and they taught him Tai Chi. He was big activist and stood up for injustice. He loved his cricket and tennis, and still does.
