    "I received personal letters from Bertie, some with family historyinformation she was working on at the time, from her home in Ethel,during early 1979.  Edith and I visited her and her son Frank in theirtemporary residence in Little Rock after returning to the US in summer1980, where they had moved while Oliver was being treated in LIttleRock, before his death in September 1979.  We later visited her overthe years in her permanent home in southwest Little Rock over theyears until her death in 2002."
