Happy Birthday, Kathy!

Happy Birthday, Kathy Boyer!! Today is my cousin's birthday--I won't say which birthday, but listen to the music......

Kathy is my Aunt Dot's daughter. Dot was my mom's oldest sister. This branch of the family lived in Sacramento, California where their dad, Ed, was an FBI agent for many years. Dot and Ed had six children with two sets of twins!!

Some of my favorite memories from childhood had to do with us going to Sacramento. I loved to go visit our cousins there. I also remember how excited I was when they came to Douglas which was quite often.

Probably the best memory I have was when Cecilia and I went to visit them in the summer of 1963. I was the youngest of all of the girls and I always looked up to them. That visit was so much fun as we went water skiing and I was able to tag along with all of them. Kathy and her husband, Lynn, were high school sweethearts. Lynn was (and still is) such a big tease and I loved being around all of them.

When Kathy and Lynn were married in January of 1965, I was asked to be in the wedding, as was Cecilia. I was so honored to be a part of Kathy's wedding. I am including a picture from their wedding on this post.

Kathy and Lynn currently live in Alabama. They have three wonderful children and six grandchildren who all live in Alabama. It is always so much fun to get together with all of them.

I always look forward to my visits with Kathy. I always looked up to her as a child and I truly respect her as an adult. Happy Birthday, Kathy. I love you!
