Aunt Barbara was my Godmother, and I always enjoyed receiving her annual Christmas gifts as a child. Some of the gifts I remember well were a pink jewelry box; a manicure set; a rock collection! My last visit to Seattle was with my son about 25 years ago-a trip to remember. Thanks for the great memories!
