Personal Notes:
Mother's chocolate pie was the best I have ever tasted. Everyone loved her chocolate pies.

Memories: Dad, Uncle Claude and Ed Sullivan were partners in a coal mine in Virginia City years ago. If you saw Dad and Claude together, you would think they were going to fight at any moment. In truth, Claude was Dad's best friend. I don't think anything hurt Dad as much as Uncle Claude's illness and subsequent death. It hit Dad really hard. Claude was a constant presence in our lives, and Dad was lost without him for a while.

When my children were young, I would take them to Mom's for Halloween and let them Trick or Treat there among family and friends. One of my daughter's fondest memories of Halloween was going to Ed's house (Sullivan). He saved pennies all year long and put them in a big jar. Small children were allowed to take all the pennies two little hands could hold; bigger children were allowed to take all they could hold in one hand. My kids always looked forward to his house on Halloween.
