    Hi Tim,
    Great post! As a matter of fact I wanted to make a post about Deirdre too, as I found this picture with her, Patrice and Louis Kraft.
    I thought Deirdre and Rory were not in contact with Patrice, but it looks like that Deirdre was in contact with Patrice.

      If I’m not mistaken Tina, Deirdra spent many times down in Jamaica with Patrice. Yes Rory has expressed a little attitude.towards dearest Patrice. Now that all is all in the past and I need to know more of what happened to the estate in Jamaica..

    Hi timerider;
    The estate went to Patrice’s grandson Luke Stoecker, who also is known as Luke Flynn. Born to Arnella Flynn on August 21, 1975 daughter of Patrice and Errol.

      Luke Flynn looks to have inherited more than just an estate from his grandfather Errol. Striking resemblance.

        Talking about resemblance! Nora said that Deirdre looked a lot like Errol, but in my viewpoint she looked a lot like Nora, Arnella like Patrice and maybe Luke too, not sure about that. Sean a lot like Errol. Rory I am not sure, maybe a little Errol.

          Rory looks a great deal like Nora’s side of the family, particulary like Errol’s father with whom Rory had a very close relationship. She inherited her father’s height and sense of adventure, his heightened sense of nature and love of animals. To be around Errol it was said was often like seeing details of your surroundings in particular detail he noticed and being with Rory is the same. Plus, she has a frank way of speaking if necessary, a delicious sense of humor, is open to conversations with strangers but values her privacy highly. All traits found in Errol, too. She is generous, outgoing, and tenderhearted but also practical and realistic. If you had seen my brother and I together you’d notice he looked more like our mother and I looked more like our father, Earl DeWitt. Seeing Rory in person I was struck by how she resembled Errol’s sister, too. But her grandfather’s bone structure is printed all over Rory!

            I must concur with David. The photos of Nora with all those freckles with tom boyish looks have passed on to Deirdre and maybe some to Rory and I see Flynn’s in Rory just from my cousin’s Flynn side of the family.Yes David that slim frame came from the grandfather Flynn fer sure! As disjointed as it was, the Flynn family of kids was very attractive and full of activity with much talent passed on…

          All the photos i’ve seen of young Luke and young Sean in their 20’s spell twins to me.However Sean Rio has the dark looks of Errol and a handsome man he is!

      Just getting back to this posting, of course I knew all about Luke and I’m so very glad that he is master of the Flynn legacy in Jamaica. I remember he was interested in helping the people of Jamaica with schools for the children there.

    So strange; I just became aware of this film last week when I realized my old acting coach had a starring role in it. And Deirdre was involved too? Speaking of which, the picture of Deirdre at the bottom of the article you linked to looks more like Errol than anyone I’ve ever seen.

      Wonderful coincidence, zacal. It will be fun to watch this movie looking for Deirdre.

      Here’s another shot from the shoot:

    A pal is trying to determine Flynn’s bloodtype. Anybody know?
