Recent photo of my brother Richard in front of Grandpa John and Grandma Lorene’s house in Ottawa, Kansas. They built this cottage with its cat-slide roofs in the midst of the Depression. Here, they raised five children, tended gardens, cooked and baked and played piano, presided over holidays with crowds of grandchildren, showed a hundred slide shows of their travels, wrote a thousand letters, read a million books, and moved out only to go to a nursing home. This place houses nothing but happy memories for my brothers and me. Glad to see it looking so tidy and well-loved.
