My mother invited me to go to a memorial luncheon for Ray Lowry yesterday. He was my mother's second husband's first wife's sister's husband. Is that confusing? The nice part was that Ed Melzer's children and some of the grand and great grand children were there. It was fun seeing them again. When I asked Dwight and Glen if I could take their picture with my mother, Dwight answered, "You mean with OUR mother!" This was a sweet tribute to the way they welcomed her into the family 17 years ago. It was fun seeing my step-siblings again!
