Remembering Betty

Flower Girl 1955

At last the pain in me subsides
and lets the joy in me abide,
as I can now celebrate the life,
not death, of my little drummer.

Reunion of Patton/Chastain Cousins

The Chastain/Patton cousins recently gathered in South Pittsburg, Tennessee for a long over due reunion. Cracker Barrel generously gave us a private room to break bread together and for three hours to reminisce and reconnect over coffee.

Our coordinators.

Nine first cousins (some by marriage), five children of those cousins and one adorable baby representing the next generation, participated in the joyous occasion.

All agreed that our time shared was wonderful and we would meet again in the Spring. Oh, how Leonard would have enjoyed this day!
