Close to six decades have passed since a young family re-settled on the shores of a lake the Iroquoian named Skanadario. This “beautiful water” lapping on the shores adorned with fruit laden trees, soon became a place for sailing, relaxation, and refuge for a family displaced by post-war Hungary. Generations gathered in this special place to celebrate and remember those who had passed, but undoubtably shaped their character in immeasurable ways. Summer’s warm winds soon drew family and friends to a newly built cottage. Shoreline trees witnessed an expansion of the home and sitting area, with new vantage points of seafaring ships and natural wonders across sparkling, sunlit waters. Soon after, a young woman visited for the first time and was introduced to both the family and the stunning view. Six years forward, Almos and Maureen’s July 9, 1977 union widened the family circle, and eventually introduced the next generation to Grammy’s place. The sound of cousins’ laughter filtered through the strings of their guitars as the melodic gifts of music united all who gathered there. World travel, music, art, fine food, wine, and a genuine thirst for knowledge solidified the couple’s love. The peace they found here in nature, combined with fond memories of Shaw Festival weekends never failed to bring them back to the north end of Irvine Road. As they celebrate forty-two years together, this view will always remind them of days gone by, a family’s joys and sorrows, and unknown moments yet to come. The sun may set on this special place, but they rejoice as they bathe in the warmth of unforgettable memories.
