I enjoyed "meeting" each person at your "Gathering". You've captured all the little things that endear family to us, "Betty had heard Pete's stories about the War a hundred times." I always visit the cemetery when I'm able to return home (once a year) too. I enjoyed this nostalgic piece.
Early on you mentioned three things that caught my eye. I too had an Uncle Pete and an Aunt Betty (my father's brother and sister) and I to live in a small upstate New York community. Our last reunion however was 1997 just days before my mother died. Thanks for sharing the joys of your family. Keep telling your story I'm sure you'll connect with many other readers. Have a happy reunion this year.
