MY FAMILY IN PHOTOS

My family seems very close despite the distances that separate us. Between e-mail and the telephone, we manage to keep in touch, and this web site also helps. My older brother Keith lived most of his life in American Samoa, my brother Roger is in Illinois and my brother Gregory, his wife Emi and three children are between Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and London for the moment (see also Travel pages for Bulgaria and California). My wife Martine has settled in the Nievre region in central France, my daughter Agnès and her husband Bahador and daughters Lia and Laleh and son Luca are in Geneva (not that I see them any more than anyone else) and my son Alexander and his wife Mahalia Gagnon, stepson Jérémie, my grandson Benjamin and granddaughters Alie and Nalah are in Quebec (see also Travel pages for Quebec for other family pictures). Jérémie and his partner have now given me a great-grandson. The earth is but one country...
