Meet the Girard's
Fletcher Girard is the father of the family. He was born in the 26th of February year 1925, to Eugène and Adèle Girard, both now deceased, and had an older brother called Saber who died during war in the year of 1950. When he was 20 he met Marie Johnson and fell in love with her, but he waited one more year to pursue their romance when she turned 18. When he was 23 they got married and are still together to this day. Fletcher owns a catering business called Red Food, named after his first dog. The business isn't doing that well but Fletcher won't quit and insists some day it will.
Marie (Johnson) Girard is the mother of the family. She was born in the 15th of October 1928 to parents Ronald and Eleanor Johnson in the United States, but moved together with her sister Hilary (Johnson) Moore to Verre Tranquille when she was only 16. At age 17 she met her first love Fletcher Girard and started a relationship with him when she turned legal, marrying him two years later and taking his last name of Girard. Fletcher and her tried to have children for a long time until they found out Marie was barren and couldn't have babies of her own, so they adopted their two children - Piera (Girard) Roux and Saber Girard - named after Fletcher's deceased brother. Marie has her own small grocery store - selling mostly fish, in Parrain Verite and is enjoying the simple life with her family.
