Thanks for posting this.  Patricia Andrews was my aunt.  Unfortunately, I had very little contact with them over the years.  I do remember traveling to Howard with my mother and stopping at the Pancake House.  When we had a cousin's reunion in Colorado Springs a few years ago, I got to meet one of their daughters.  I had not seen her in 40+ years back when she was just a baby.  My last meeting with my Uncle Albert and Aunt Pat was many years ago at a funeral for Albert's brother, Richard.  The above mentioned daughter wanted to attend the recent reunion, but stayed home to care for her mother.  As it turns out, her mother died on the day of the reunion.  I doubt anyone in Elk County would remember her, but they might have stopped at the Pancake House while in Wichita.

HELP!  I'm talking and I can't shut up!

I came...  I saw...  I had NO idea what was going on...
