A remembrance

Today would be my Mother's 93rd birthday. This pic was taken of our family the first time Deanne and I hosted the big Thanksgiving Day feast. We were in our first year at Pleasantville UMC. That's me in the center, needing a haircut. Mother is to my left (my right, from the viewer's POV). Beyond her is Deanne, with our son Zachary in the high chair. On the other side is Stan (my [former] brother-in-law), Dad, nephew Tony and sister Claire. Our daughter Anna and niece Robin hadn't been born yet.
