Mom and Dad were the best parents – I miss them every day but they are always alive in my heart. They were a wonderful couple, playing crib, driving across the province for lunch, playing bingo and just looking after the family.
Rindy and I were born 11 months apart. We grew up with both Baba, Sonia Bayrack, and Granny, Pearl Fedoruk, watching our every move. In those days, we all lived next door to each other.
Rindy married Jim Kuchmak and had two children – Jodi and Jerry. I married Bruce Audley and had one child, Patrick.
Dad’s brother, William Bayrack, married Ollie and they had one son, Bill Bayrack Jr.
On Christmas Day, 1994, I married Rick May. In July 1995, Rick and I took Mom and Dad dancing at Harrison Hot Springs. To my knowledge, it was the last time they were physically well enough to go dancing. Mom and Dad were wonderful old-time ballroom dancers – it was like watching one person dancing, not two.
