Note:
01/21/2007 I got an update on Aunt Gertrude's death from her daughter Marge yesterday. Gertrude died in Long Beach, CA at the age of 44 with her daughter, Marge, son, Ralph and brother Herb at her side. Marge and Ralph were 16 and 15 respectively at the time. Marge had forgotten that this was the date. It was a very bad time for her and she tried to put her mother's death out of her mind. Her death was apparently preventable. Gertrude was experiencing abdominal pain. She took a laxative and applied heat. This caused her appendix to rupture.
