Summer in the mid-1960s (not sure which year). This picture was taken at my paternal aunt’s home in Zanesville, Ohio. Pictured left to right: my 1st cousin, June (my dad’s oldest sister’s daughter), my Aunt Eva and Uncle Bervil (my dad’s brother), my Aunt Gertrude (Dad’s oldest sister), Eric (June’s grandson), and me. Notice the span of ages between my first cousin – who has a grandchild a little younger than me – and me!
I haven’t seen June or Eric since the real early 1970′s. The last time I saw my Aunt Gertie was in the summer of 1972. I saw my Uncle Bervil and Aunt Eva for the last time in the late 1960′s. Luckily, I am now in touch with their son, grandson’s, great-granddaughter’s, and their daughter.
