About My Grandparents

Mom and Grandpa George went to a Rand Alumni event today. She says the speakers were two very special Nobel prize winners in 1990 for Economics, William Sharpe and Harry Markowitz. She says it was pretty interesting, and she learned a lot about how the Rand Corporation worked. It's 60 years old this year, and mom was 4 years old when Grandpa went to work for them.

Mom left at 8:30 in the morning and got home after 7:00 tonight. And I was very VERY good. All by myself. OK...OK...so maybe my Aunt Margie dropped by a few times to take me out and play with me. I admit it. But still....aren't you everly so proud of me that I was pretty much on my own for almost ELEVEN hours? Hmmmmmmm???

Mom says my Grandma is looking pretty good. She's getting around by herself with the help of a walker. You remember? She broke one hip, went home and broke the other one? Well, anyway it's a very painful thing to happen and she's getting better and that's what counts. Mom says I can go visit her when I'm a little older and not so energetic.

My Grandpa Gene died today at 5:00AM in the morning. I never got to meet him but I know my Mom really loved him a lot. He was her father-in-law for twenty years so she got to know him pretty well. He and Mom talked on the phone just a couple of weeks ago. I'm really sad for his family. I know they will miss him. He had the same birthday as Cailin and Clancy. He was born on 9/26/1912 and died today, 11/18/2006. God please bless Grandpa Gene and look after him for us?

Love,

Mary-Margaret

Oh, my God. He died the same day as your Auntie Rose. I hope that they are so happy together in heaven.
