My Pickering Family

The Sunday of Labor Day Weekend
is traditionally my
Pickering Family Reunion
We started it over 45 years ago
We are all so close in our relationships
that we wanted something to keep us together and
in each others lives.

I love my Great-Aunt Colleen
My Mother is her niece!
They were the same age!
She and my Mom were very close
They were best friends.
It was hard for my Aunt Colleen
to lose my Mom.
She and I have been very close.
I guess I just kind of filled in for my Mom.
She is a very creative woman.
And has taught me a lot.
I'm glad I carry some of the same creative genes that she does.
(funny how families are like that)
I am thankful Pickering is part of my heritage!
