  • I just went through my father's pictures from his recent trip to Aberdeenshire. Unfortunately, my Dad passed away upon his return one week before Rose. He had pictures of archives and headstones. He had a picture of a Quirie headstone and I am sure he planned on sharing that with Rose. I will pass the sad news on to my Aunties in Aberdeen. - Posted by: Alan Ford () on: Feb 13, 2012
