I loved Aunt Bonnie. My parents still stay in touch with Steve. In fact, they went to Hawaii together for the 50th anniversary of Pearl Harbor a couple of years ago.
I think there are probably some really interesting stories in the Tredo/Gilbert family, but finding them may be difficult. If you'd like to e-mail me privately we can exchange what we know. My dad lived with Jace and Flora for a little while, as well as Aunt Bonnie. I'd have to go back to see if there was anyone else he spent time with. firstname.lastname@example.org
