Marsha and Me

Here’s a FIRST COUSIN I’ve never met until she visited in my area recently.  My goodness, what a loss I’ve had in not knowing her before now.  She visited Maine for a wedding and went out of her way to come and meet me—along with her husband, who was equally as charming as she is.

My dad had two brothers and a sister.  My Aunt Jean was the youngest sibling.  Marsha is her daughter.  Aunt Jean married an Air Force man, and the two families were together in Hawaii, during the Viet Nam war.  So, my sisters knew Aunt Jean’s children, but I had married just before my dad went to Viet Nam and my mother moved the family to Hawaii to be nearer to my dad.

Now, like many families today, Aunt Jean’s children are scattered across America.  Marsha and Tom live in Colorado. So I am grateful for that wedding and the chance to meet Marsha and Tom.  They liked Maine.  Perhaps they will come back some day…  They will always be welcome in my home here.
