So nice to hear from you. Yes, my mom did live in Brecksville, where she was raised by her grandparents, Anna and Myron Fitzwater. I am almost certain that she spoke of a friend named Beatrice.
She would have loved to have reconnected with your mom. Unfortunately, my mom passed away August 17, 2003, after a very courageous battle with cancer.
If you have any memories that you would like to share, please e-mail me. I live in Toronto,Canada, with my husband and two daughers. A great city, but I missed out on spending more time with mom, who lived in Hudson. I am an only child and mom and I were very close. She was also the only grandparent so her passing was difficult on us all. Memories are precious. Thank you for getting in touch. Hope to hear from you, Jacalyn
