The Floods
Sylvia Flood, "Aunty Pud"

An Angel of MercyWhile Sylvia, "Aunty Pud" was an administrator over a hospital for the elderly mentally disabled, we stayed in her home for a short time until we were settled in our own home. She gave me the privilege of using her library and this is where I was able to research the many books written by doctors on the patterns and problems of disabled children. With the knowledge gleaned there I was able to deal with my child's condition and any children who were in various situations as to their injuries.

She was a highly intelligent woman. Somehow whatever forces to govern us were kind to me and brought me under her direction for just long enough for me to benefit. The books I poured over gave me an understanding and respect for the learned doctors who recorded the many different children's problems in association with their particular problem. It was there I was given the revelation that doctors like all people come in many different hats. If I did not have this knowledge, it would have been an even greater handicap we were up against. As it was, I memorized the doctor's names, although I can't remember them now, and what they wrote and was able to draw from their knowledge, calling it up when I needed it.

Probably, this is her birthday with her brother's and sisters honoring a loved sister, one who cared for them after their own mother passed away. She is fun loving in taking the role of "the queen." In this picture. Aunty Pud was a wonderful cook and this was how she relaxed. I remember her being able to use herbs and spices with skill.
