Memories Timeline


  1. Brenda and Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Carleen’s passing. Carleen was my best friend after I was first married, and she taught me so many things! She and your father Richard were some of the most important people in my life. I have many happy memories with your family, and some I would like to share with you all. Richard and I had both been radiomen in the Navy, and his accomplishments amazed me. I have since done some more research on both the families. Both he and your mother had a fascinating lineage. Please remember to keep us posted on how you all are doing. I am sorry that I found out so late.
    Keep in touch with us, please.
