It's Halloween, which is usually a fun and games types of Autumn day and night. However, for the Walls clan, there is sad news.
Aunt Gertrude passed away this morning at here home in Independence. She was ninety. The family had had a party for her earlier this summer, as I recall. Gertrude was Grandpa Howard's other sister. (Juanita, Aunt Neat-ce, died in the 1970's.)
There was little known about the arrangements this afternoon.
