Velvet Nickerson, daughter Haley and granddaughter Cooper left Wednesday (returning Monday) for Kimberley, B.C. to visit Velvet’s parents Ben and Linda Nickerson so they could meet Cooper, their first great-grandchild. Cooper also met many more maternal as well as paternal relatives. Lots of pictures were taken and Cooper tells us she was not spoiled a bit! Just loved a lot.
