Some weeks back, I finally got in touch with my cousin. I greatly enjoyed our conversation. I learned more about her and our family. What is of note for this space: According to my cousin, our family has held a reunion every year, in the same spot, for who knows how long! What a shocking twist! I did not know this, I never heard of this. So, I went to my mother. She expressed that she knew of there being a family reunion, but after my great aunt died, her father’s sister, she lost touch in that regard, as my great aunt used to hold them at her house.
Apparently, since our aunt’s passing, the reunions have been held at a community center in a nearby town. I am hoping I have not missed this year’s event and can find out where it is being held. I really want to attend!
