The Long Lost Family

I had an interesting weekend. On Saturday, I made a 4 hour trip for my great uncle's 95th birthday party. My grandmother hadn't seen him in quite some time so she really wanted to make this trip since who knows what will happen to either of them. She's 87 right now.

Anyways, I got to see what is to me the long lost family. This is my maternal grandfather's family. The reason they are lost is that my maternal grandfather died the day after I was born and some of his other siblings have died since then. That led to the family becoming fragmented in some ways. There have been some reunions here and there and I couldn't go. However, I got to see family I didn't know I had and got to know some of them. So this trip was special. I wasn't sure I wanted to go in the beginning because I wouldn't know many people but I'm glad I went.
