Frank and Elaine Reyes

Monday July 8, 1991

I feel more rested after a good night's sleep. I spend the day washing clothes and putting things away. Justin entertains himself. Frank goes to L.A. to take his dad to the doctor to have the catheter removed.

We drive Justin to Frank and Elaine Reyes to spend the night. We all go to dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Frank Reyes insists on paying.

We have a nice visit back at their house. We get home at 11 p.m. dead tired.

Mom made a point of taking Justin to visit his other grandparents whenever he came down to visit in the summertime. The photo above was taken in 1985 as Elaine reads a book to Justin while Frank stands over them. Elaine always loved to read, but most of all she loved to paint. She had an entire room in her house full of her oil paintings. Frank and Elaine both lived well into their 90s.

Mom also made a point of taking my brother and I to visit our Dad's mother Alda whenever we visited mom, even though she and dad had been divorced for 20 years.
