From the Armand Diaries, where Armand recorded the gifts they received from his generous mother (often referred to as Geefer):
January 1, 1955. Xmas was mainly money for us, since we asked for it, but Ann had everything: metal dishes, a stove, a nice gold ring, a large fire engine,
clothes, a set of Wedgwood child's dishes, etc., etc.
We went again to Toronto, Wednesday, December 29. Been to the White Horse Inn, near Paris, for 8 or so meals, give or take one. Otherwise, quiet rest, read and gossip.
I don't think you could get past three pages in Armand's diaries without some reference to Mother or Geefer. She wrote to him regularly, sent food and money when he was in college and later, lavished gifts and attention on his only child. It must have been a memorable Christmas, Ann still cherishes her Peter Rabbit dish set.
