This photo is circa 1960.
The back row is my brother Greg, Grandma Moore, my mother Dorothy, her sister Laurie, my sister Helen with Loree in her arms, and my sister Alma.
The front row is my brother Mike, cousin Cheryl, and my sister Frannie.
I am not in the picture, because I was taking it with my little Kodak Brownie camera.

Laurie was my mother Dorothy Smith's sister.

I haven't been down to St. Louis in decades, but still remember visiting with Uncle Rich and Aunt Laurie. They were good people. They will be missed.

The iris in the photo is growing in our flower gardens here. Mom brought some back from the house in St. Louis where her mother, Alma Moore, lived.

We wish all our cousins well, and hope to see many of you in the future, so please take care.
