I know very little about my father's side of the family. I had been to his parents house in Arkansas when I was a small child but I don't remember much about that visit. My uncle, Pete, and his wife, Hazel, visited in San Francisco once and I took them out to dinner. His son, my cousin, Edward, also visited once to San Francisco. Then years later, I would see my grandmother when she was in her nineties at Darlene's house, along with my aunts, Jessie and Faye. Pete came on a family cruise a few years after his wife, Hazel, died and he brought his girlfriend, Lou.
