Willy inherited the artistic bent and used to paint little robins on the back of each envelope he posted so we loved getting letters from him. Willie and Bessie had 5 children; 3 girls and 1 son. They all married and had children, and at present there are approximately 8 grand children. 1 of Willie's granddaughters, Fiona Ross has been in contact with Ian's daughter Kathy since 1965.
