Remembering Long Ago


Today Karen’s cousin Sarah went with us to visit Karen’s Aunt Flo and Uncle Jack. Both are well into their 90’s and will soon celebrate their 70th Wedding Anniversary. Soon after their move to Salt Lake City in 1958 Jack developed an interest in the family genealogy and through the years did an impressive amount of research and produced several books of family history. During our visit we talked a lot about their early years, of how the two of them met in Cincinnati, Ohio, of the various places they made their home before settling in Utah. It was fun watching both of them relish the memories. We learned a little more about Jack’s Army years and Sarah learned that her Uncle Bud married the girl next door. After we left them we had a delightful visit with Sarah and Rick in their lovingly refurbished 1910 house talking family history, technology, and travel plans with their newly acquired WV camper van!
