[Creeta] was a good mother. When the boys got out of hand she punished them, never allowing them to get ahead of her. . . . [In her early thirties] . . . when she finally went to work in the industry . . . she learned that she was very intelligent, that her attention to detail would carry her far in any career field that she wanted. She also learned that she was very . . . beautiful. . . . Dad was an incessant reader and student of the spiritual and mystical. Of course, the Bible was his top reference book, and he was steadfast in his love of Jesus and his service to God. . . . [He] was able to communicate with men of all faiths, and not make them feel as though they were on a slide straight to Hell because of their beliefs. . . . Dad and Mother both saw to it that Stan and I were surrounded by books of every sort. . . . Dad taught Stan and I that if anyone hates us, that we should love them and show them we love them by doing good to them.
