Remembering the yellow bird of Texas today
Just a little update to remember the day of her passing:
She did everything for me and she was so happy about it.
She arranged a whole trip just for me to go to Disneyland.
On a recent visit to Schulenburg for the Arnim, Baumgarten, Sengelmann Family reunion I came across this picture in the Schulenburg Museum:
This is a picture of the livery stable owned by her father: The F C Arnim Livery Stable.
Here is a picture of "Pomp."
That was the nickname of her father, Feodor Charles Arnim.
She called him Papa.
Here they are at their house in Orange, California on Glassell......
