2. Do you have brother's and sisters? one younger sister & two younger brothers. What are their names? Diane, Scott & Todd. How old were you when they were born? 2 , 8 & almost 11.Do you remember the first time you saw them? Not Diane, but the boys yes.

3. What about your aunts and uncles? Judy & Art, Ruth & Bill (her first husband was Bob). Did they play an important part in your growing up? not really, they all lived far away. Did your family get together much casualy or did you have to travel to spend time together? We didn't have any family locally. I do remember travelling to visit them all but we didn't get to spend time together very often.
