  3. Seeing their faces (and all the faces on your blog) makes me want to hear their voices and to know about their lives.

  4. Iggy emailed me an obit and from that obit I was able to locate an address for Robert in Fargo ND . I will mail him a copy of the blog and see if he wants the photo. His Grandmother would be the little girl Mina or Minnie.
