Celebrating Thanksgiving with mom and Lisa. Kathy lived from 9 - 16 years old in Seattle. She had thanksgiving with grandma Nel and grandpa Shirley at noon and then at 5 they drove across Seattle to Magnolia Bluff to celebrate with Aunt Elaine (grandpa’s sister) since she wouldn’t talk or interact with Shirley (her step grandfather). Her father was Hollis and when her mother died they adopted out all of the girls including Elaine.

Hmmm . . . another small correction. Aunt Elaine (gpa's sister) didn't speak to Grandma Nell and her father, Grandpa Hollis/Joe. She blamed Grandma Nell for not taking in all 4 kids when their mother died and she blamed Gpa Hollis/Joe for "abandoning" them. This, even tho their mother's famiily (the Fergusons) didn't like their father and got a court order denying him contact.
