It took awhile to even find one. This was taken about 1970. Dad is still hangin' in there (in Winterville, NC), Mom passed away in 2004, and Bren is still happier than I am to have her picture taken.


Thanks to Marco Martinez for the spotlight

    A nice family shot, John, and you look just like most young people at that age would look if forced into a family photo. My condolences on the passing of your mother.
