    I never knew about this. Alex never brought it up. He must have had a whole life of things that he couldn’t talk about. New wives don’t want to hear about past lives.

    I’m not surprised, given how many times Grandma said, “Now don’t you tell Al that! He doesn’t need to know that!” in your interview with her in 1981…
