    The family would have card parties, playing euchre for hours on end. When we had the parties at Aunt Sheila and Uncle Sonny’s, us children would play in the attic, the cellar and in and out and all around the yard and the grove. We had the absolute best family reunions. What a lady she was, her kind and giving heart had no end.
