|Ed's (maternal) Grandfather's Doctor's office used to be above the bank.|
While we were at the family reunion, Eddie and I took an afternoon out to go to Fonda and see everything. And I thought .. everything... would be dull as dishwater, but it was quite fun. I will share.
|Ed's (paternal) Grandparent's farm. The old homestead was just torn down and new barn and house going up. But as far as you can see - the farm.|
|Ed's (m) Grandfather and GrandAunt's house. His mom and two aunts grew up here.|
We also went to the Fonda Museum. It is an amazing project of a couple of people and very interesting.
|Right as you step in, there is Ed's (m) Grandfather. A Doctor who was also a Knight of Saint Gregory!|
|Okay, an ORIGINAL Sky King. Even kid's toys were streamlined in the 1930s!!!|
Finally, as it was Memorial Day (eve), we went by the cemetery to pay our respects. What I find amazing is that both sides of the family are here. In fact, I took this picture (where the flowers are) at his maternal Grandfather's gravesite, and Eddie is standing at his paternal Grandparent's grave site. That is odd. I mean, for me, one set of Grandparents is from Illinois, and the other from Utah and one from the Netherlands. Here, they are all from Fonda!
