Sad news, my aunt Sarah died this afternoon after a long illness. Sarah was the mother of our regular contributor Shari, and as warm and generous a person as you’d ever want to meet. Please take a moment to post a condolence, thanks.
A few weeks ago, I got a note from a visitor I hadn’t known, but whose grandparents lived in my house when she was a child in the 1950s. She was gracious enough to send along a few photos, and I hope she doesn’t mind if I share a few of the more generic ones here.
