These are the oldest three children of Leona Whitworth, my husband’s (and now my) grandmother. She had nine children.
When I married into the family, she had scores of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We tapped her on the shoulder at a family dinner to tell her that we were expecting our first baby, and before we could say anything, she looked up with a gleam in her eye and said, “When are you due?”
