My great grandparents on both sides came from Portugal & Brazil, had their named changed from Magao to Magan, & from Gago to Gage. My moms side lived in Connecticut & Mass, my dads side lived in New Bedford, Mass. When both my parents were in their teens, both families moved to Southern California. Then tragedy struck, my grandfather Jesse Magan died in '61 from a stroke.
After my grandfather's death, my father started goin to a bar and struck up a friendship with the bartender, my other grandfather Americo. My grandfather introduced my dad to my mom, they fell madly in love, got married and had 4 kids.
The first 2 children grew up to be happy spouses and loving dads and are currently living near my parents.
The 3rd child, me lol, met a woman on the internet in 1996 from New Hampshire, fell in love, and moved to Massachusetts to be with her.
I joke with my parents, New England wanted a Magan to come back to Massachusetts. lol
I'm a happy hubby to a loving wife and awesome 9-year old child.
The 4th child, my late sis Jennifer, died in 1988 when a truck struck her as she was running across a highway. It was a hard time to go through, after 25 years, it's still hard on me.
I maintain 3 memorials on here, my sister's, my grandfather on my mom's side and my grandmother on my dad's side. I'm a stay at home dad, I view lotta memorials on here, read bout the lives of the departed, specially the ones who've gone too soon...it helps me in a way, to know many out there are going through the same thing.
Lauren Dear Sean, I was just thinking about you yesterday. As you've prob noticed, I'm rarely on Facebook any more. I am hanging in there some of the time. Thank you for the sweet message, and for remembering. I hope you are doing well.
RE: hi :) I sure did watch the show. It is one of my favorite even though I imagine it is all fake. I am so glad Miss Fairy survived such a terrible ordeal. I really enjoy the locations a lot. Personally I thought the b&B owners were as weird as the supposed ghosts. My very best always, Sarah.
RE: hi :) Hi, Sean! I'm sorry I have been so bad about keeping in touch. I hope you are doing OK. I haven't been on FB or here a lot. Thanks for the wishes. Hope you had a nice holiday as well. Hugs, "Lauren's Mom"
