Happy Halloween to all my friends, past and present! Don't forget to stock up on candy for all those trick or treaters!
Remembering that Marash Girl's dad never allowed his children to go trick or treating, because, as he saw it, it was begging! And his mom, even when they were starving during the first world war in Marash, would not allow them to stand in the line for the food that the missionaries were providing to the hungry. She did not want her children to accept charity. Grandma Yepros Kurtgusian Bilezikian worked at the missionary hospital for one loaf of bread a day. That is what she and her children would eat. God blessed them. They survived to tell the tale!
