1944 Classic idea for a family pic.

Muriel Anina Lund b 1935 d 2014--Janice Katie Lund b 1939 d 2015
     Social media at it's best.  This very creative picture was posted on my Facebook Messenger
to share with me.  I have never personally met the distant cousin who sent this to me but, doesn't matter I feel as though I know them and I certainly am happy to be in contact via the internet.

     Look closely at these beautiful sisters, Muriel and Janice (who certainly look alike) playing a card game with the family pet posing for the camera.  Sister on the left is keeping score. Even their sitting posture is like a serious card player.

The only information I have (at this writing) is that the picture was taken by their father James Lund in 1944.  Muriel was nine years old and Janice was five years old.  It was not until 1951 that another sibling was added, a brother John Gustave Lund who sadly died two weeks after Muriel's death in 2014.

     Mother of these children was Katie Rose Treloar (of the Hepworth line) a first cousin to my father.  My father (Vern) talked about many fun times with Katie and her sister Pauline while living in Salt Lake City.  Parents, Katie and Jim spent their married life in California where all the children were born and all are buried in California.
 Love Family and their History.
