Lane Reunion 2012

This past weekend we had our 46th annual Lane family reunion. It was a great time with at least 90 family members in attendance! I was thrilled to meet several family members that I do not remember ever meeting before. I also had the chance to learn more about some of those unknown people in my grandmother, Rhodees Lane Orr's, photo album. My cousin, Barbara, recognized some of her mother's family. I have gone back to those pictures I posted here and put updates with the names she shared with me. The reunion was slightly bittersweet since my father was not there. He would have been thrilled with seeing so many family members and some he had not seen in so long. My cousin, Barbara, also brought me a picture of my father from when he was a teenager. I was so happy to see that and to catch a glimpse of him as a younger man.
