She often held Richard on her lap and fed him “Eine Brokfast” (hot milk and bread) when he was a child. Richard has many fond memories of life with her when he lived in the big house in Bellflower during the depression years. The family would shut off some of the rooms in the Winter months to save heating costs and Richard had lots of fun playing hide-and-go seek in this big fourteen room house.
