The Last Word  

If you've come this far, you are a person of great persistence! As you can see, ours is not a notable family. No kings or earls or presidents. No Nobel Laureates, no five-star generals. I've been calling this family saga "The Exhaustive Account of a Family of Nobodies" and that moniker is not far wrong. But each person in our family -- Guy, Ada, Ebba, Don, Helen, Dave, Wilma, Bob and Betty -- made a contribution to family and community, each was beloved, each is missed.

If I had not done this research, I'd have spent five years on something else, and that something might perhaps have been more impressive and noteworthy. But I wouldn't have missed this journey for the world. Thanks for reading....
