Grandma - today is 01/28/2019 and you passed away 32 years ago. Wow I was six years old and remember you so well. I wish I had the opportunity to know you as an adult. Thanks to a recent lunch with Pammy I know some of the highlights of your life married to your 3rd husband d'Albert and your time in San Jose & Santa Cruz, Washington, and Anchorage Alaska.
