Personal Notes:
Family Memories from Alan Alsop: This was a favorite of my mother, Thelma Alsop.
Family Memories from Marla Aud Haller: I remember Aunt Thelma with her stockings rolled down around her ankles. She worried about Alan, so I wasn't always on her best side. I was too daring, but she loved me. She was a wonderful cook and a great hostess. She gave me many cooking tips that I still use today. I loved her large house in New Harmony and we used to slide down the banister when she wasn't looking. I remember the caf'e that she and Everette owned in New Harmony and I was able to eat all of the banana splits that I wanted. I remember her playing the piano and singing for everyone, even in her last years.
