I wanted to share this, one of the photos my cousin, Mary Carol, recently scanned and posted of my mom, my aunt Fran and my cousin Skipper taken in 1945. Skipper, John Vereuck, died last week in California. His family moved west when he was about 6 or 7 yrs old (I think). I know his mom and younger brother and sister visited regularly after that until the early 1970's but I don't remember Skipper or their dad once they moved. Since he was about 6 years older than me, I don't expect he hung around much with us 'little kids' when they did visit. My mom, my aunt and Skipper's mom, Ro, were really BFF's besides being aunts and niece because they were close in age. (Skipper's grandmother was their older sister, about 20 years older than my mom and my aunt, Fran, was a year or 2 younger than Mom.) Another
sister, Antoinette, owned the camera and loved taking photos of everyone and everything! There are enough photos of me as an infant/toddler to fill up 2 albums...oh, yes, they do fill up 2 albums and that's why I never liked having my photo taken as an adult!
