For Grandfather

He wished to retain his golden trumpet, the gift of admiring friends. It is my pal,” he said, “and when I answer the last curtain call, I pray that my trumpet be buried with me.”

November 2, 1933, New York Times headline, “Dead at Age 54. Was Trumpet Soloist in Leading Orchestras Here and in Boston and Detroit.”

Gustav F. Heim (1879-1933)

      Thank you, Dan. I hear tell he was quite the lady’s man in his day. In the book, his divorced wife was sure the mystery women’’s photo in his pocket watch was that of his lover. She wants the granddaughter to find out who that woman really is? That she does, digs into his past, and gives you the answer. 📚🎶

  2. This begs the question, what happened to the trumpet?


    • C.E.Robinson says:

      Greg, thanks for your comment question. After Grandfather died, his music store in Manhattan was ransacked. Unfortunately, his son didn’t get there in time, and his trumpet, plus other valuable instruments were gone. It was suspect that his partner made off with them. But, we’ll never really know. 📚Christine
