Remembering Aunt Virginia

History of a favorite quote: in a restaurant by the lake, a relative grumbled constantly about how slow the waitress was. Aunt Virginia quietly replied, "Only one person was perfect --- and they crucified him."

More reflections:  my son's cub scout troop went to visit Ft. Campbell, Kentucky -- home of the 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles, my husband's group.  We invited BJ, Aunt Virginia and Uncle Henry's grandson, to join us.   Aunt Virginia made her pancakes -- Ryan and BJ had a pancake eating contest with Kyle trying to keep up.  Uncle Henry showed us some silk from a parachute he got while he was in France during World War II.    That was the last time we saw Uncle Henry.

Both were very very special to me, and not only because they got engaged the day I was born.
