    I met Beula in 1991 when we moved onto Dennison Road. She was such a lovely lady. I asked her a million questions about the grape fields and tying the grapes; she was so happy to talk about them. Whenever I saw her outside, we had great conversations about grapes, farming and the state of the world. My condolences to the Einhouse family.
