Please tell Eugenia Cairns-McFeeters of Maryland, my condolences on the 4th anniversary of her beloved mother, who was my aunt, and godmother's death. Aunt Elda was very spiritual and generous, and loved life. Eugenia is a retired Navy Captain, and Cryptoanalyst with the US Navy. Her dad, Chief Petty Officer, Albert Cairns, was also with Naval Intelligence, and went to Russia in the 1950s. God loves that sacred, intelligent family. I have childhood memories of Albert in the forest, and Aunt Elda, who loved me.
