Posted on by 0 comment

Our family started off the New Year on a down note. We lost our cousin, Terry Dodd. Terry is my second cousin on my Dad’s side of the family. Please pray for my family, and Terry’s immediate family as they adjust to life without him. I’m sending my prayers their way too.

Cousins Party

Posted on by 0 comment

Wednesday found us in Texarkana, Arkansas and Texas, visiting family and celebrating the holidays.  First we went to see Aunt Jane in the nursing home.

Then we went to Nedra’s for a cousin’s party.  My Dad hasn’t seen some of his cousins in years, so he really enjoyed it.  I of course, had to get them all together for photo opportunities.  Here’s a picture of the Harris cousin’s as children, and as adults.  Some of them are no longer with us, and Pat had to leave early and missed the picture.

Here is a couple of group shots, with everyone that came except for Pat Harris Sherrin who left early, and Jon Brock and his family, who arrived after the photo was taken.  I’m sorry I didn’t get one with everyone.

Two different photos for two different photo takers, next time I will remember the tripod!

It was a fun time, and a special Thank you to Nedra and Jerry for having us all in your home.
