I remember the day that Joy and George popped in on Joe and me . It was quite pleasant surprise ,we lived in Mesa Az, so. I hadn’t seen them in probably never.
But, instantly I knew who she was. It was so great , we never stopped talking, we invited them to spend the night , since they drove from California. It was a wonderful time. We have been out to California a couple of times to visit them and meet some of their family.
Because they popped in one afternoon, we had made some lovely memories, that we will keep in our hearts forever. So happy we were able to be cousins, but, also good friends.

Joy and your dad visited me in Kennett, Mo. once. I found them to be very nice. I wish all of us cousins could have met on a regular basis. Your dad wanted a quilt that I had made, my one and only. Every time I look at that quilt I think of their visit and at times I wished I had let him have it. I still have that quilt. I am Marcelia Hinchcliff youngest daughter.
