R. P. Heffner, Leona (Freeman) and Arthur Z. Heffner's infant son, died at six days old. He left a four-year old sister Mildred, and a two-year old brother Willard. Only a year and a half later, his mother gave birth to twin girls, then died fourteen days after giving birth. One of the twins, Margie, died four days later. The surviving twin lived a long full life. I can't imagine losing my newborn, then my wife, their mother, then another newborn, one of twins, all within a year and a half; it must have been devastating.
