I am going to center the growth of our little branch of the tree around a single leaf. Her name was Jean Ivalee, later known as Iva Lee and Iva Jean,Patricia Lee, but mostly "Lee". She was a single off shoot, that tried so hard to bloom, but somehow was plucked from the branches, and left to wilt alone. Now, we will splice her branch back on to the tree, and watch it flouish, through her grand and great grandchildren. Welcome home Mother.

Iva Lee, a first born, a healthy, beautiful baby.
She was born to a middle class family. She was very smart in school and probably many of her school mates thought, "oh, I wish I were Iva Lee, she's so pretty, so smart, everyone likes her"
"She could sew, she could paint and draw, she could cut and curl hair, she could cook, she could write stories and poems, she could do anything."
Anything but find happiness. Why?
