You may remember the family reunion I attended in July. It was a gathering of my mothers family. My uncle, mom's brother, had photograph albums full of pictures and family history we'd never seen. My sister and I believe the above photo was taken around the time mom would have been 16 or 17. Her 84th birthday would have been next week.
Uncle Cliff gave us a disc with all the photos and histories that were in the book. Copies of the disc will be made and sent to all our siblings, as in this age of digital record keeping it is easy to pass on the pictures, and even the stories, of the past and we're very happy Uncle Cliff was savvy enough to do so.
