When my father-in-law was alive, he was an amateur photographer. He and my mother-in-law would go on birding trips, she with her binoculars and he with his camera. Years ago he had a darkroom set up in the laundry room. His 85th birthday would have been on December 21st, the winter solstice. He died ten years ago this November.

Papa would annually pose the cousins on a small wooden bridge over the creek (or coulee in South Louisiana) in their backyard. My children being the oldest cousins remember this fondly. My youngest daughter announced on Christmas that she wanted a “bridge picture.” Two of the cousins are missing, but five of them (my three and my sister-in-law’s two) lined up on the bridge for a 2014 photo. Today on this Celebration Saturday, I celebrate the memory of Papa and the love of family, especially cousins.
