I have such fond memories of extended summer visits with Aunt Ivy & Uncle Harold, along with a couple of other cousins. We were young, probably 7-10 years old. We always had the best time with them. On one visit when I was around 12-14, Aunt Ivy also invited her niece, Patsy, to stay with them. We had lots of fun doing things together that summer. Later, when Patsy and I had graduated from high school, we also accompanied Aunt Ivy, Uncle Harold, and Brenda on a very enjoyable trip to Michigan to visit Aunt Martha, Uncle Bud, and Nancy. If one can picture the perfect Aunt, that would be Aunt Ivy.
