I had hoped to learn more about dadís family this trip, but heís still not willing or able to be communicative. I donít know what his deal is now, but I will take the stories from Momís side Ė I had so very little exposure to anyone other than her parents, that they all seem more like characters in a novel. Grandpa Verhage - so grandmaís father Ė was a performer at the theater? I should have asked: was that bio dad or what? How does that jibe with the pictures of grandma as a toddler in Detroit?
