The story is written in these posts exactly as it was sent to me by Craig. I broke it into parts -- one part per post -- because it is rather long to put in one post. I believe it was Craig who provided the explanation of the family relationship; it was not part of the original story and I thought it provided a good context for the story, so I put it in this introduction.
Thank you Craig for sending this story to me! It was especially helpful that it was already transcribed into an electronic format, making it easy to post and share with the family. If anyone else has stories transcribed or electronic versions of Grandma's books or other family documents, please send them along!
