So Glad to Meet You.... Again!

By our calculations, other than an all-too-brief time at Erica and Casey's wedding, the last time that my first cousin, Jim Hoffower and I saw each other, he was 14 or 16 (now 61) and I was five years younger (still am for that matter, hee,hee)! Through Uncle Bob & Aunt Marge, we were able to get back in touch through Christmas cards a number of years ago... and were lucky enough for him to accompany Uncle Bob, Scott (another first cousin) and Mary Beth (his wife of this year) to the wedding. Given the confusion of such an event, and the fact that his wife Paula was caring for her parents at the time and could not come to the wedding; we were so happy when he asked to come for a visit this fall. We had a great time getting to know each other and reminiscing about what we were able to remember of visits to Grammie and Grandpa's and tales of the Mills. Uncle Bob and friend Mike, with no knowledge of Jim's visit arrived the same weekend which gave us a mini-family reunion!
