Good morning, Elizabeth, Maude Van Ostrand passed away in California at the age of 98 or 99. For many years, she had her own hair salon in Portland Oregon until she decided to retire and Paul and I convinced her to move down to Los Angeles where we lived. At first, Maude rented a small house and when she got old, she moved into Paul's guest house where she spent the remainder of her days.
Paul has two children from his first wife: Debbie and Gary, and two children from his second wife (me): Susan and Jason.
Strange thing: I never heard of the name Roberts, and have always known Paul as Paul Van Ostrand. Maude's full name was Maude Van Ostrand Watson. Does that name mean anything to you?
