Visiting the Fletchers

Friends are forever, cousins are for life!!!

Cousins by blood – friends by choice.
Darlene Shaw

Cousins by blood, best friends since birth.

Cousins are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.
Ed Cunningham

cousins are friends that will love you forever.
Constance Richards

Cousins are those childhood playmates who grow up to be forever friends.

A cousin is a ready-made friend for life.


We try to see the Fletchers more often than we do….but when we’re together, it’s like not much time has passed, we just pick up where we left off and fill in the missing parts.

When I got there I couldn’t help but notice this photo of my grandparents I had never seen.

Walter and Susie Fletcher, grandparents I never knew. John thinks I resemble my grandmother. I think she was ever so much more stylish. How about that hat? 🙂

Harley was very fascinated with Rubí..

..but couldn't take her eyes off of Silas.

It warmed my heart to see the cousins playing together. Cousins are special, aren't they? I sure love mine!

Ah, the men's corner...Alex, Uncle Arthur, Enric, and Kenny with Josh in the front.Â

When I stepped in the room to take the picture, there was some discussion on The Three Stooges.

    The pics are great Barbara! I remember your grandfather very well. He died before any of my children were born and of course Your grandmother died when your Mom was about ten or eleven, I think.As the youngest, your Uncle Arthur lost his Mom while he was quite young also.How blessed we are to have seen our kids grow up.
