Hundreds of crisp business cards, lined neatly in their package, attribute the mother as a restaurant owner. By the look of family Christmas photos, she is happily married with two young children. A faded postcard from Australia, dated 1955, sits among piles of bills, but the topper is a smart-looking miniature couple crafted for the top of a tiered cake, crammed in a box aptly labelled in permanent marker: “Wedding.”
