G.D. Morgan, Sr. Christmas 1983
Dave's parents Grover and Eloise (Fry) Morgan were transferred to Arcadia, California in 1971. They loved it so much that they decided to retire out there. They tried coming East for Christmas one year, but sat huddled in front of the fireplace most of the time. After the Christmas visit of 1975 (pictured below), they encouraged (sometimes paid for) each of us to go out there for Christmas.
I loved going out there for Christmas (which we did 2 or 3 times), but we couldn't always manage (two babies were born in early February). So, they did have a few Christmases without any of us. But, they managed to establish a new holiday tradition!
