I have always wanted to write the life story of Alice Mary Woods. Therefore this *short* bit of information about her life was actually extremely hard to write. I wanted to expand, I wanted to dig deeper. But I am not a storyteller. I am best in facts. I’m saving all that for another day, when perhaps I have learned how to tell the story better. It was good to get the facts, it was fun to find the documents.
To come from a life of relative luxury first to Victoria, then to northern British Columbia, Alice must have been such a strong person. I saw that strength passed on to the wonderful ladies in the generations before me, and I can only hope others also see me as strong (to all my brothers, I said strong, not stubborn).
