The first people I ran into at the hotel were Katherine and Grace Keene and Ron Fong. I met Katherine and Grace at the first convention I attended which was in Charleston. They are from Texas. Katherine is a long-time collector and Grace is her daughter-in-law. After Grace became part of the family, Katherine recruited her as a paper doll collector. They always come to conventions together. They are nice people and easy to be around.
Ron is from Seattle. I first met him at the Indianapolis Convention. He is always upbeat, funny, friendly, and full of energy. Everybody loves Ron!
