Happy 90th Birthday, Mema
I believe Great Uncle Chico wins top honors with his story about fishing for loose change on the couch during my grandparent’s courting years.
Also in attendance, the surviving Bolin Brothers — Gene, Chico, Bunny and Louie. A bit of history — our family is proud to have war heroes among our brood. Chico was wounded at Iwo Jima — where he was also photographed by famed AP photographer Joe Rosenthal. Bunny was a co-pilot on the Lazy Baby. All of 19 years old, he was shot down during a bombing raid. He was captured and became a POW for 19 months.
