Michigan Aunts and Uncles

One of my goals for this year is to see my aunts and uncles. My father is of a family of ten children who survived to become adults. All but Ella are alive. The Michigan group met at the Country Kitchen near Byron Center for a mini- reunion. We laughed and joked and had a great time.

Bill and Donna, in the second picture, left before the outdoor pictures were taken. In the picture of me with Dad’s three sisters, l to r are Etta, Jean and Anne. Ray and Bern are in the foreground and cousin Martin is in the background of the men’s picture. I spoke with Aunt Bernice, from Montana, when she phoned Aunt Jean. Bernice walked five miles with her friends last week and then the group went out for ice cream. She is eighty years young. Aren’t I lucky to have such relatives?

Yes, Darlene, you are lucky. Not only to have so many relatives living, but to be able to get together with them is a real blessing. Thanks for sharing family times.

Darlene you look so happy being with all your relatives. Awesome!!

We are heading for Michigan after Glacier. We are going to Alpena, Traverse City, New Baltimore and a few other cities while we are there. Would love to do Mac Island again.
Miss you, Laura
