My cousin, Deb and I had talked of getting together this summer and plans finally took shape. We decided to meet in St. Louis. I found great hotel rates on line -- close to some of the major attractions and then learned that possibly I had selected one in a scary neighborhood. Not to fear, Janet had experience as a dispatcher for the Knox Co. Indiana Sheriff's office.

We never knew our grandparents because they both died at an early age, so it was interesting to read letters from our Grandma Brian that I had discovered in my mother's keepsakes this summer. We shared stories that we'd learned from our mothers about these two special people.
We stayed right by the old
Union Station so we voted to
eat-out at Hard Rock St. Louis.
