True Patriot Love in All Thy Sons Command
My husband’s grandparents left a country of strife and pending war to bring their family to Canada. They sailed from Bremen, Germany, and were processed through Ellis Island. They lived for a time in the United States, finding their way to Saskatchewan and then Alberta, where they made their permanent home. They, too, were strong, hardworking honest people who brought to our country a belief in God and hard work and then passed their strengths on to their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They had to learn a new language and a new culture but their work ethic is found in the land that is still farmed by the family. A lone windmill still marks the spot where they began their Canadian dynasty.
Fleeing persecution in the USSR, this family found freedom in Canada.
