One of her grand, or great grandsons just died. He took his life, I believe. In New York. Many are not living very grandly. Peter would know more. He keeps in touch with their families.

Pity. My one boy is in and coming your way soon, and the other goes in in June. My eldest has changed so much for the better! Very respectable young man that I'm very proud of!
