This is a picture of three of the sisters, Aunt Jewel with her daughter Linda, Maxine with her daughter Pat and baby Gene and Aunt Dean. As usual, Pat wasn't paying attention and Gene was throwing a fit.

I remember Aunt Dean and Uncle Ray's 50th anniversary party. Some of the family flew out to attend. They had a D.J. and he asked her to dance. She was embarrassed at first but she danced with him. She was a funny lady in her own way. Unfortunately, because of the distance, I didn't get to see her and her family often. I will miss her.
