Class reunion - 60 years!

Loretta and mom
Mom and I went to her class reunion on Saturday - the Seneca High School Class of 1956 celebrated 60 years this year! Mom's class was not that large and there were many other classes in attendance (from the 40's through the 70's). Aunt Rosemary and Aunt Carol's class reunions were there too ... so everyone that came by the table knew the "McCann" girls!

It was nice to put names with faces as mom talks about her classmates from time to time. Good ole Jerry Barla was there! He told mom a couple of months ago that she had "better be at the reunion" since she was feeling good this summer and been off of chemo for awhile, so of course mom keeps her promises.

It was nice to have everyone ask her how she has been feeling - they all know she has been battling cancer for the last few years and it is nice that everyone is still close and keep tabs on each other. That is what being from a small farm town is all about - lifelong friendships!
