My family gathering

Well as most of you know I had some family come in from SC and we all got together for a cookout. We had a wonderful time and was so nice to have most of us together. Was missing 2 aunts (my father's sisters). It is so hard for my cousin Kathy to get around to see everyone so I thought what better way than to have a cookout. Both of my parents are gone and have been for 20+ years so it was sad in a way also. But just wanted to show you a few of the pic's we took. Thanks for stopping bye Hugs
This is my couisn Kathy (From SC) her father Wilburn, Uncle Tom, and of course me. (OMG i have put on so much weight after not smoking)

This is a close up of my dad's brothers, the one on the right looks just like my dad!!!
