Cyrus: you are my grandmother's older brother. Her name was Edna Etta Wyman Hunt. Your nephew Clay Noble Hunt was an Los Angeles Police Department Detective who was killed while on duty in 1955. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I was married to a Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff for 29 years and I'm proud to have you and Clay as part of my heritage.
