Mommy's Address Book

She gave away her mother's address book.  How could Marash Girl have sent this valuable piece of family history to Marash Martha?  How could Marash Martha have thrown the book away, seeing it as having outlived its usefulness?

Auntie Mogie, Jake and Johnnie Bosnian, Auntie Lucy and Uncle Levon, all the women who were in the Armenian Women's Educational Club (for which Grandma Jennie -- Mommie -- Jennie Bilezikian) was the secretary at one time), all the folks we sent cards to at Christmas, all those folks and Marash Girl can't even remember their names!

Whatever you do, dear reader, don't throw away your family's address book.  What?  You no longer have address books?  Then print up your addresses from your computer and put them in a safe place for future generations.

As they say,  hindsight is always 20/20.
