|Family visits to the Grandparents|
are now relegated to tending
to their final resting spots.
Visiting Pisgah and Woodlawn cemeteries is an annual family tradition that is now mostly tended by Danny, the eldest cousin and the only male in the bunch. I try to go once a year and Don’s girls have gone with me a couple of times but we rely upon Danny to do the heavy lifting and cleanup work. (Thank you Danny!)

a distinguished pedigree with
the architect of Camp David.

|The house on Morgantown Ave|
Definitely can see why we'd
assume it's been abandoned.
I have many family photos of the house during family events such as my Mother’s high school graduation and birthdays of Uncles and cousins. In Danny's photograph it shows the house in obvious ruins. His fear was that it had been abandoned and left to rot.

NO REST FOR THE SCANNING
I really only even mention all of this because I have spent the past week working to clear out my parents home and prepare it for sale or rental. Going through all of their personal effects and papers I found an entire tub of photos. It will be an experience going through all of these and sorting them for scanning. Another friend of mine is going through the same thing with her family photos, and we've agreed that it really does bring back memories, some good, some bad, but all worth remembering and cherishing.
