  4. Joyce Barnum Bianchini says:

    I am sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was an important part of my youth, especially after the death of my mom back in 1950. When I lived with Grandma Barnum in Torrington after my mother died unexpectedly when I was 5, ‘Aunt Charlotte’ was able to make me laugh and enjoy time together at dinners. I remember noticing her hair and laugh, and how pretty she was. She was a spirited lady and fun! So many years have passed and even though we mean to stay in touch with family, that isn’t always possible. I know that my younger years were much easier because of the support she gave. Again, my regards to you… and an ease of knowing she is at peace.
