      The 1920's was called "The Roaring Twenties." During the twenties, sister Frances remarried Marion Nicholas Dona and had a son named Vincent. Her husband was from California and in 1924 they moved to San Jose, California. They had a daughter, who they named Gloria, later on that year. The Dona house was sold to the Rafcamp (spelling?) family that became our very best friends. The Rafcamp family consisted of Walter Sr., the father, Frances, the mother, Marie, the oldest daughter, Walter Jr., Raymond and Harold, the youngest of the sons.
