My father’s side of the family recently had a cousins reunion. Only about one third of all the cousins showed up, but that is still a lot! The twelve of us had a pretty nice afternoon of catching up. We met at a restaurant in west Georgia, and ate barbecue and “chewed the fat”.
So, in the photo above, there is Jimmy, Joyce, Robert and Carol from my Aunt Sarah’s bunch. Missing are Phillip and Buddy. Next, there is my brother Richard, Me, and my brother Hank in front next to me. My sister Linda and my brother Preston were absent. Behind me is my cousin Joe, his brother Andy in the red shirt next to him, and their sister Bonnie, Uncle Bill’s children. Uncle Herman’s two boys Ronnie and Steve are on the right side. Uncle Bud’s family (4 children), Uncle Bruce’s family (7 or 8 children), and Aunt Mary’s family (4 children) are not represented at all. I really wish more of my cousins had come.
Here are some more pictures from the reunion:
I don’t know when the next reunion will be. Probably one year from now. I really hope that all of us are still on this earth and able to get together again.
