At the invitation of Marjorie Cross, my wife of seven years (1965-'72), I attended today the interment of her father's ashes in Randolph, New Hampshire.
Hershner Cross was the name of her father. He was a fine man in too many ways to explain. His obituary is at this link, and gives the gist of the story.
RIP, dear Hersh, my first father-in-law!
