Happy Thanksgiving!

As we celebrate Thanksgiving at the Duke Neurosciences ICU ward with Dad, I am reminded of happier times on this day. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Cherish your family, and don't forget to write those family stories down. Your children will thank you one day.

There is always a car that must be worked on. My nephew, brother, father, and
 husband. Thanksgiving 2001. 

Aunt Millie four months after suffering from a
cerebral hemorrhage. Thanksgiving, 2001. We lost her
in 2009.

Mom in "command central" -- the kitchen. Thanksgiving,
2002. We lost Mom this past September.

Lange siblings. Sitting, Ruth (Lange) Miller Meek;
standing Dorothy (Lange) Jennings and Herbert Paul Lange.
Thanksgiving, 2002. Sadly, none of them are with us and there
is a hole in our hearts.

We fried a turkey for the first time in 2004. The men were responsible!
Dad is explaining something important to my brother and husband.

My brother and his wife came up from Alabama. Dad and brother are engineers.
Can you tell by the hand motions? Thanksgiving, 2004.

We had a little snow in 2005 the night before Thanksgiving and my nephew
made a snowman.

We fried the turkey again in 2005; but I was too afraid to ask what the men
were up to that year. From left to right: my middle brother, Dad, my
husband, and oldest nephew.
