    During WWII, my mother and I resided in Tri City with my paternal grand parents. While my dad served in the US Army, we lived in a former grocery/ home, now fallen into its surrounding lot. Since I was so young during that time, my memories are few.

    In later years, I do remember my mother telling me how very blessed we were that her in laws took us in during the war time. She also often mentioned how wonderful the nearby families were to us. These included the Harry Burton family.
