I spoke with Gordon. His memory has faded a bit since his surgery, but he said he believes that Blanche is his Aunt. Any info you can give on the family would be great. My mother in law and husband would love to know. If anyone would like info us for their family tree I would be more then happy to supply it. Also someone mentioned they have a picture of Gordons 10 siblings and parents. Is there anyone you can email it to me. I believe Gordon would really like to see it.

Thank You,
Nicole
