  1. Thank you, Janet, for sharing this tribute to my Uncle Dan, Grandpa’s second child. He and my father were the closest and we all lived on the Trumbull property together with Grandpa from the end of 1946 (when Dan, Paulette and baby Arla arrived from France) until 1966, when Lad and Marian moved back to California..
