Gleanings from my father Glen S. Player's ephemera from Seattle school reunions. He graduated WQA 1932 and QAHS 1936.

Mt. Pleasant Cemetery – final resting place of Shirley and Myrtle (Weiser) Player

I remember the day like it was yesterday. We had managed to get these siblings together for the first time in 17 years. They had met in twos this way and that every other year or so, but not all three. So naturally, we took them on a tour of Queen Anne Hill, including the grave sites of their parents at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery.

My father, Glen Shirl Player, MD was so weak, my cousin stood behind him to assist him in standing upright. (Dad didn’t want to be pictured in his electric wheelchair.)
