A family reunion provided some wonderful pictures. Brittany and Joe -- the next generation come of age. Three generation shots are always great -- here's Kelby, his dad Art and Art's Dad Justin. My sister Meg grows more beautiful daily. Francis is the oldest son of my oldest brother and in timbre of voice, sense of humor and mannerisms was every bit his father's son.
Here are my brothers, sisters, and cousins. This was the first time in more than 20 years that we had an oportunity to see our cousin Nancy and our aunt Judy from Panama. It was also a great opportunity for the next generation of cousins to get together and party.
My brother Jim found a photograph of my paternal grandparents which was of some interest since my father's mother died shortly after his birth and his father died when he was an adolescent. Here is my namesake, Michael Spring, with his wife, Catherine O'Brien Spring, circa 1900 -- with a little photo magic.
During a recent vistit to my sister, I had a chance to get a couple of photos in a wonderful evening light. Bill and Meg with Bill's parents and another three generation photo of the Chow's with a couple Pittsburgh Springs as interlopers.
