  1. Oh Ellie!
    so glad you sent the email to alert me to your update! What a wonderful trip down “memory” lane. The photo of Mema & GBM is one I’ve never seen before (isn’t it delightful??!!)
    An email to you tomorrow, followed by an answer to your letter.
    I will show you lots of photos when you are here!!
    Love you tons,
    a. steph

  2. PS: GBM looks goofy at his desk at Sandia Labs! (But I very much remember visiting him there – it was nothing like visiting a dad at work nowadays!)
