2007 Fuchs/Fox Family Reunion
The inside of the house was filthy and completely trashed.  It didn't appear that anyone had been inside it for the past six years.  Eva and I discussed the site of the little white house where Roland and Avis had lived 1941-1944, and later, as we examined some of the old photos I have on my computer, we agreed it had been along the fence line on the north side of the house, just where Uncle Marco had told me back in 2001.

The attic windows on the north side of the house were removed years ago, but the original windows on the south side are still there.  There used to be two bedrooms upstairs, and as Marco began growing taller and taller, he used to sleep with his feet sticking out one of those windows during the summer time.
