Isn't it funny how when you are working on family history, especially on the generations of the family that you knew personally, how it brings back so many memories. I was organizing notes this morning on mom's side of the family. She has 12 brothers and sisters so lots of aunts and uncles and cousins. As I was writing down what I remember and what I know of each one so many memories came back. Unfortunately, for us and mom's side my aunt Miranda passed in 2010, she was the first of the siblings to pass away and she was always my favorite. I spent so many summers with her and my uncle Kenny. I have to say because I had heard them both say it so many times, they thought of me like their daughter not only their niece and I loved them both so much and miss them greatly. My summers thru some of elementary school and high school were spent with them. We would go and spend a lot of times with my grandparents and at my aunt Sheva's and at my uncles house. Oh the times we had.
I also spent a lot of time at my Aunt Faye's house and at my aunt Sheva's. I have so many memories of weekends spent in middle and west TN with my aunts and uncles and cousins. When we would go to my aunt Faye's or any of my other aunt's houses most of the time the rest of the family would gather there also. I can now only wish I would of been interested in family history then because they would always tell stories and everything. Unfortunately most of the time that is how it goes by the time we get interested in family research the ones that could of told us the best stories of our family such as our grandparents have already passed.
