Olivia turned to the third member of the composition -- the father. Thee he stood straight and tall. He stood guard over his wife, over his child.

Esther had painted vivid images of this man for Olivia. She had told her that the uniform he wore was that of an officer. That his name was Patrick Cronley. Olivia was encouraged to refer to the man as "Grandpa Pat". Olivia had been shown the medals of honour, of courage, Grandpa Pat had been given. She'd held the medals but she had never met the man. He had died in 1943 serving Canada in the Second World War. Mere months after the picture had been taken. Katherine had been barely one year old.
