In memory of Tante Ushi from the Smolinskis

I will always remember the famous Murden parties. The adults would get together in the front room and party and dance as we kids looked on from the doorway. Tante Ushi will always be young in my memory of her in her party attire, dancing away. What a dancer she was. What fun we had with our "cousins". I miss her kindness, her love, her enormous vitality.

In loving memory of Tante Ushi. I always picture her at the famous Murden parties. We kids would watch the adults from the doorway in their party attire. She is forever young in my memory and a great dancer. We had such fun with our "cousins". Always remember twisting to "Java". What a wonderful character.!
