Outline her Life:

I met Aline only once in my life, or perhaps twice and I know little about her. The impression I gained was that she might have been slightly retarded, or otherwise a little "peculiar", perhaps being something to do with her parents being first-cousins. Certainly my father was not close to her, and I suspect he didn't much care for her. She was seldom talked about and usually disparaging terms when she was mentioned. I don't think I ever met her husband who I think was somewhat looked down upon by the family and who I believe died several years before she did.
