Susan, are you related to an Alray "Ray" Appling? Heis my husband's brother and went to California about1980 to go to Van Nuys and wehaven't been able to locate him either.Ray has a daughter over in California and we wondered if maybe it was you so if you will take a moment, will you let us know if you are the one? Ray was married but divorced the daughter's mother ?? years ago.We do thank you.Joanie.
