1970-12-Christmas.jpg

There are not many photographs with all of my siblings in the same shot. This makes me very sad. But it also makes each and every one of them a priceless treasure. This photo is labeled Christmas 1970 in my mom’s handwriting. I’m sure Dad took the picture. While the best part of the photo is seeing us all together, I think my favorite part is the age of the boys. There aren’t many pictures from their teen years. But this is what they looked like in my earliest memories. Because of the age difference between us, I don’t have any memories of them as children. (I wasn’t even born yet.) There is a 10 year difference between the youngest son (Jon) and me. By the time I came along, they were already young men.
