Simontee, I don't have that device yet for my phone, and I'm taking a full day of classes all this week, but by next Saturday I should. Could you also look at the recent letter I posted on Roland's page, concerning Nancy's sister Susan.

Thank you, Elin

Hi again,

Yes, I have several photos from after the glass was cleaned and in fact the fellow who helped me there, who was very tall himself, took some without the glass, so those are even clearer. I need to figure out how I can transfer them from my phone to my computer. My phone is not an iPhone although it takes great photos. I will be going by MetroPCS to ask them about this before the end of next weekend.

RE: Braudrick

Hello again,
Great job on the new memorial pages !
It looks like Robert Braudrick was born in Uniontown, Pennsylvania and may have been married three times, Louise Burger, Betty Jo MacDonald, & then to, Mildred ? . Unless Mildred and Betty Jo are the same individual ? Family Search shows a marriage taking place in Nevada on June 15, 1963 between Braudrick and Betty Jo MacDonald.
So, little Susan became "Susan Simon" and lived in Newark ? Funny, I worked in Newark and probably passed right by her, not even knowing it; but back then, I wasn't aware of a Susan Braudrick or Susan Simon, all I could remember was the name, Nancy "Broderick", that I scribbled on the back of her picture years ago. It looks like she might still reside in Newark, as a Newark address and phone number can be found by typing in her city and married name. Oh well, hopefully life's been good to her.

Have you emailed me on my personal email? I have not received any from you recently. I need to go back in time and find any emails that I might have over looked. And yes, it's excellent to have a photo of it's on to Susan. I've asked Roland to keep his eyes and ears open for any more information on this family. What I remember reading was that Nancy's father remarried and moved back east, so that's where Susan may still be living.

RE: Braudrick
Hello again,
It looks like Nancy's father, Robert, got remarried in 1963 to a Betty Jo MacDonald and later passed away in 2007 in Racine, Wisconsin. They may have had children together. Daughter, Susan, Nancy's little sister, was born, Susan Louise Braudrick, on September 1, 1953 and may have resided in Arizona sometime around 1990 and possibly later and may have never gotten married.
I'll keep looking.

RE: Nancy's pictures
Hello SMontee,

I've posted two pictures of Nancy to the memorial page that you created for her and thanks for doing so, by the way. I have no pictures of her mother, Louise, as far as I know, but I wish I did. I may be able to find something out on her sister though; will let you and Elin know if I do.
Thanks again.
Take care, Roland

RE: 148471881 - Nancy Braudrick
Good afternoon friend, It's been some time since we last chatted. I received Roland's message that his aunt was friends with Nancy, and have written him back. I've also gone ahead and sponsored her find a grave allowing for more photos and no advertising. It's looking better now that Susan may be found.
If it's ok with you and Roland, I'd like to keep the newspaper articles in on her memorial. It gives that all important sense of history when I remember that in the 1950's we didn't wear seat belts and even into the 1970's with many more traffic fatalities occurring because of this reason. My own daughter and I were in a similar horrific accident and had we not been wearing seat belts in 2004, the possibility was great that I and possibly she too would not be alive today.
Roland mentioned that his aunt was told by her mother(Roland's grandmother)that she could not go with Nancy and her mother that day as had been the plan. I call that premonition.

Hello SMontee,

I just sent Elin a message, so I'll have to wait to see what her response is. I don't have a photo of Nancy's mother, Louise, as far as I know, but I do have two, where Nancy is wearing a white party dress of some kind; one where's she with a group, which included my aunt and another, where she is standing with another little girl of about the same age. It would be good to have them included on the memorial page that you created for her.
Have a good day,

148471881 - Nancy Braudrick
I have a few pictures of Nancy Braudrick taken a few months before her death at my aunts birthday party on July 3, 1957. She was a good friend of my aunt, in fact, my aunt was suppose to go along with Nancy and her mom, Louise, on the day that they both passed away, but my grandmother said no, so she didn't get to go with them. My aunt told me the story of Nancy back when I was just a kid and I just now thought to look for any information on her. I do have pictures, but I can't post them to her memorial page, since there are too many pictures already attached. If you can make some room for a picture on her page, I'd be glad to share a picture of her.
