Maybelline money, a blessing and a curse for my family.

While most of the Maybelline families were adjusting to their new lifestyles, mine was falling apart in 1970
My grandmother, (Nana,) and my mother Pauline at my parents 25th wedding anniversary, mock wedding in 1970.  My parents filed for divorce shortly after.
My father, (Bill Williams,) meets Linda Cattanio,
 12 years his junior and marries her.

Like our family, crushed after the money came, my father's GT 500 Shelby Mustang was rolled by a parking attendant at his cousin Noel's Christmas party that year, symbolizing the end of an era for our family.

Bill turns to his cousin Noel, asking "What now Cuz?" As always Noel stands by Bill through thick and thin, proving blood is thicker than water when the chips are down.
