Streetwise: Christmas memories
Bob Jolly, Retired attorney: When I was growing up in Alameda my grandmother lived downstairs in an old Victorian home with her son, and my mother, aunt and I lived upstairs. My fondest memory is coming downstairs on Christmas morning and the pleasure I had in watching my grandmother open her gifts and her joy in having all of her family there. That was the best gift I got on any Christmas. My grandmother was a big part of my life.
