Visiting with Charlotte and Yvonne
(Thursday September 20, 2012)
Charlotte and daughter Yvonne stayed at the Holiday Inn for a few days,
and we managed to get together touring around town while catching up and
sharing old times. They hope to move back to this area when Yvonne
retires from her job in San Jose. We drove over to the Henwood house her father Charles
built for his parents many years go. It's been remodeled and those who
live here now planted beautiful morning
glories along the fence and porch. Charlotte's grandmother Agnes
and my grandmother Grace were sisters. I didn't get to know Agnes very
well because she died from pneumonia fairly young. However, I remember the
neat stories about her many talents and wonderful humor. She enjoyed
with the kids in the field next door.
Part of the field that was next door.
We visited the family grave site where Yvonne took
And of course we stopped by DeMartini's to touch
bases with family here.
After driving around to old familiar places we
headed home for a spaghetti dinner. It was a fun day with some very
special gals. Hope their dream turns out just like they want.
