Still no diary entry.

But Aunt Marjorie has written some more memories about her brother Albert.

"I wish I had asked more questions when I was young. When Albert graduated from Harvard University, Mother went to Cambridge for the graduation. My father was dead and we were very poor. I wonder where she got the money to go? Probably Dale , and maybe Dick, got the money together for her. Or maybe Grandmother Campbell? I guess we'll never know!!"

Aunt Marjorie commented once before that Grandma never shared information about her financial situation with Marjorie or Eleanor.

  1. Marjorie was right, we never were told about our Mother's financial situation. In my case, my children know all about my finances and I feel more secure with them knowing. Nothing much in my life is a secret to them, but we don't dwell on the negatives. My mother, tho, seemed to be secretive about her personal issues which I feel is why I never truly knew her - until I started reading her diaries. Is secrecy a good thing in families? I personally prefer the openess in my family.
