    Sincere sympathy for your loss. I knew Dixie and the Upham family as a kid on 30th. We had so much fun in the neighborhood and Dixie was the one who was the most fun…..the Upham family was so welcoming. They had a player piano and we spent hours on that piano singing, etc….my favorite tune on that piano was: ” I’m looking at the World Though Rose Colored Glasses”. My family moved to Michigan when my dad retired from KPD and I was 13 yrs old, I saw Dixie only one time after that…..so she will remain my “fun loving chum from 30th”. The Upham family was so nice.
