    Our condolences to the Manchen family. Aunt Birdie was my favorite Aunt while growing up. We were both rabid Cub fans. I still remember going to the Grandparents house where Aunt Birdie and Uncle Sonny would be listening to Frank Sinatra & the Boogie Woogie. I always remember her as a happy person. Hope she did not suffer in passing.
