It's been awhile

I know it's been quite awhile since I last posted. Without offering excuses, I spent the summer packing and moving into our new house in Elgin. Then, about a week after we moved in, Mozart, my beloved little dog, was killed by a coyote! That cast a pall over the move. Last week we received word that my dad's brother, Lowell Cornelius, died after battling cancer. My mother, sister and I attended the funeral and it gave us a chance to catch up with our cousins and their families. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that several cousins have accessed this site. That gives me the motivation to get out of my funk and start updating this site...which I promise to do!
