But alas, all good things and all that. Here's the end of the story
The information I have given you should give you a good start on your family tree. There are a few more interesting highlights I would like to give you so you will know what a happy childhood we had.
Holidays were always wonderful. The entire family would get together. That made for quite a crowd. We children would all be fed first and then turned loose to enjoy the day and each other while the grown ups had their dinner. Aunt Maggie often had Christmas dinner at her house because she had a very big house. She lived on Livernois Avenue and kept boarders. One of the Motormen or Conductors, who were her boarders would dress up as Santa and pass out the gifts. The only thing I didn't like about it was that Aunt Maggie put raisins in the turkey dressing. When we went to Aunt Maggie's for a visit she would always give us a striped bag with candy. The 4th of July was generally spent at Hickory Island and it was always a spectacular day. The relatives all gathered there in the morning and after lunch we were given all the sparklers and lady fingers we could handle. This helped us wear off the lunch and prepare for a very special dinner. After dinner our dads would set off the Roman candles and sky rockets and pinwheels and we would roast wienies and toast marshmallows at the bonfire on the beach. We had some wonderful times out there. We went to the Island as soon as school was out in the spring and stayed there until it was time to get new clothes for school again in the fall.
Charles you couldn't possibly remember me because you saw me only two or three times. You stayed at my house when your grandmother died. I remember sending you back home with grandmother's silver, a check and a bag of candy Whey don't you bring your family here for a vacation sometime? We would like to meet your wife and children and we'd like to really meet you. I knew you as a boy. I'd like to know something about the man. We have room and would be happy to have you. Think about it.
and that's it.
