What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. 

 ~George Eliot




The stern looking man pictured on the right was Elsie's father; Elsie did not like him; she said he worked her poor, sweet "mommy" to death; Elsie was a young teen when her mother died and her father married her mother's sister (might have been half- or step-sister).  Elsie always called her "that woman" or "that mean, old woman."

And on the left, that's Elsie May Susan (Gray) Ivy between her four brothers, circa 1950.

[I will research and find Mr. Gray's full name and the names of Elsie's brothers.  The only one I knew was Onus, 2nd from the right.]

Family quarrels
are bitter things.  They don't go by any rules.  They're not like aches or wounds; they're more like splits in the skin that won't heal because there's not enough material. 

~F. Scott Fitzgerald
