The Cast of Animal House ​for the 40th Reunion 

My Great Grandmother came to America alone, ahead of her two daughters, by sea through Ellis Island.  She was fleeing Germany in 1924 to make a life here while her Sister Paula looked after the children.  She would bring them over to this country later.  Her husband, their Father, had been buried in large shell hole, a mass grave, in France during the opening months of World War I.       Later when my Grandmother Else and her Sister came to join their Mother in this country, their Aunt Paula sent this inscribed, framed picture with her Good Niece Else for protection during her sea voyage and in her new home, the United States.  This framed picture hung over her bed until way after her death.  Else was my Grandmother, her young sister is still alive at age 102.

My last house, less than two miles from my boyhood home and two blocks from my Elementary School which my Granddaughter later attended.
