> Sorry I didn't get back to you yesterday. I did receive your email at home and here. Thank you. I didn't have the info you sent although I did have the names of Walters brothers and sisters due to my mom talking about them. She remembered "uncle "Lowell being a reporter in the war right behind the front lines, and Inez marrying Pete Wagner who worked at a hotel in downtown Chicago. He was a dry cleaner and pressed the pants for rich people. Inez died of breast cancer when her son was about 8. Pete needed someone to take care of the boy so he married the housekeeper that he hired and they moved down south like Texas or something. Then Maycel had breast cancer and had special bras made. I only have 1 picture its at home of Ruth and its very old. I don't have any other pictures other than the head stone of Carroll Fellers (sylvanis' father)and Betsy. well, I will get on the ball at home and send you the pictures I have. I haven't been feeling very well lately. Just getting back on my feet. I apolgize. take care. Edie
