Christine's thoughts on the Family Reunion!

I'm too lazy to share about the reunion and Christine is much better with words - so I am linking her comments HERE.

I will add some pictures though!


  1. ok is thee a story behind that second photo cos he so looks like he does not want to be there LOL

  2. Our dad has Alzheimers and lives in a nursing home. He is healthy as a horse otherwise so it is very hard to see him this way. Our mom thought it best to bring him to the reunion rather than have everyone have to go to the nursing home to see him. Some of us did not really like this plan, but we didn't put up a fuss because there has been too much painful situations related to our dad's illness. She brought him and it was so special, it went well, people were touched by him being there but he had no idea what was going on or where he was. His eyes did light up when he saw LeAnn (Kathy's daughter) though. We will never know what he was thinking or if he was even remotely able to process any of that. When he got back to the home, they put him to bed and he slept all night, I think we wore him out.

    So, although the picture appears that he does not want to be there, if he had his mind, he would have not missed this reunion for anything!!
