Michigan relatives visit

I received a wonderful surprise two weeks ago. My aunt and uncle from Michigan came for to visit my mom and dad. Uncle Ben is my mom’s older brother while she’s the baby of the family. The last time I saw him was when my grandfather died.

20 years later, it was like time never passed. Yes, I’m married now with six kids but the familiarity, the kinship was still there. I’ve always loved and respected my Uncle Ben and, if anything, that feeling has grown over the years.

Whether I should attribute it to all the genealogy work I’ve done or getting older, I don’t know. I do know that I love my heritage and hope that I soon have an opportunity to visit the rest of my extended family in Michigan. It would be great to see all my aunts and uncles that I haven’t seen in years.

  1. I was born in Kalamazoo and grew up in Paw Paw. I haven’t been there for 20 years. Man,has it been that long! Kara and the kids have never been that far East before so it should be a big adventure for us all. I’m hoping to take us during the summer when they have all the good thunder boomers!
