Late August, my elder sister and I traveled to Mobile to help celebrate our Uncle Mel's 99th Birthday! What fun we had gathering with our cousins and their families! So much joy, laughter and tears, even, as the Birthday Bear that our sweet Mama had purchased for Maureen so many years ago, sang Happy Birthday to Uncle Mel (Mama's brother) and his eyes just watered and so did ours! A month earlier, we had celebrated his birthday at the Family Reunion--had had birthday cake with all his relatives that come out to the reunion. Many of us gathered again--smaller number--to celebrate with him in his home on that Sunday afternoon. Here are some pix of the day!
