Here we are. The DesRochers kin and the people that love us! Nearly sixty of this widely scattered family gathered together from places far and near to reunite, reconnect and remember. This reunion found four generations of us in one place; from the octogenarian to the weeks old infant. Wouldn't Grandpa and Grandma "D" have been amazed at this gathering of their many offspring!

We attended my 40th class reunion in Evansville this summer and renewed many acquaintances and high school friendships. For once, Alice (Oregon) and Diana (California) and I were all at the same reunion! I am thankful to the faithful organizers that put this on every five years; the constants of our now middle-aged ranks who still remember everyone's name and face: Bo and Kenlyn, Nancy, Karbet, Steve...
Here we are, still smiling after all those years. Many are retired, but many have reinvented themselves and have launched businesses and new careers. Most of us straddle a similar place, stationed between the needs of our aging parents and the needs of our adult children; but glowingly in love with our grandchildren.
It was fun.
