Picnic in Shenandoah National Park, 1947

This is from one of my parents' old photo albums. It shows my grandfather, my aunt, my older sister, my brother Rick, me (in a basket!), and my father (reaching down toward me). I assume my mom took this photo.

We often went places on weekends, and Shenandoah National Park was one of my favorites. Now I live fairly close to it and visit there frequently.

The only folks in this photo who are still around are my brother and me. Inevitably our loved ones leave our world and we miss them, although they live on in our memories. Today was Fathers Day. I hope it was a nice one for you.
