I lived at the group home at Alta Vista during 1965-66. I was 14/15. I recall 3 roommates and often wonder how their lives turned out. Ginger had a bunch of siblings. Linda F. And Helen were also roommates of mine. My dad had died. I was terribly depressed, rebellious, and lonely... music was my savior, Dylan, the Byrds, the Temptations.
