In this time of social distancing, we celebrate our families at this Thanksgiving time via these photo memories!
Joan Carty with Lauri, her sister-in-law, enjoying the High Line in NYC.
Here are just a few members of Joan Carty's very large family: some siblings, in-laws and nieces. The occasion was the wedding of one of her nephews in 2015.
Sue Rutz spent every Thanksgiving of her childhood with this group of aunts, uncles, and cousins. They piled into a little house and feasted on her aunt’s cooking. Although the photo is a few years old, and sadly some are no longer with us, it brings back wonderful Thanksgiving memories.
The extended Ostuw family has gathered in Florida for Thanksgiving for many years. A subset of the 2019 group was gathered here for the annual Turkey Trot. Interesting side note: these shirts were designed by then 7 year old Caroline (front row, center) and were produced by the company that makes our Miles for a Mission t-shirts!
Bilotti's Christmas 2019 seems like such a loooong time ago . . . this was the last time we were all together . . . and then the pandemic hit.
Jane Lazgin and Rich Lee with cousin, Bev, in Hawaii (2020) and the Lazgin cousins in Woodstock, NY (2017).
