I got a note from my cousin that her dad, my Uncle Cyril, had passed. I was never real close to him but it did stimulate memories. When I was a pre-teen, Cyril was dating my Aunt Ann and to a pre-teen a boy friend is somehow magical. I remember all the big get togethers we had with cousins and Aunts and Uncles for birthday parties and holidays. At everyone my Uncle Frank would say, "Peggy if you get any taller we will have to raise the door jambs."much to my chagrin. Uncle Joe took me to my senior prom because I wasn't at that stage yet. For my birthdays Uncle Clare would take me to dinner and a movie. They are all gone now and it is hard to imagine my children thinking of their aunts and uncles that way.
