Mom’s Cousins

Between the McGhees and the Vinings, my mother had quite a few cousins. Today was the funeral for one cousin. It’s sad to see that whole generation leaving us. The collective wisdom of these octogenarians and the family memories slip away.

Hopefully much of their knowledge and stories were passed along to their children. Hopefully my generation has sense enough to preserve those and pass them along with our own contributions to the next generation.

Farewell to Nancy Jane of Wellsville. My heart goes out to all who loved her.

Here’s a picture from over seventy years ago. Mom loved to tell the story about the feedsack dresses their mothers made for them.
