Ruth, Gerry and Randy at Church -- Post 325 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I am posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't "Wordless" - I am incapable of having a wordless post!

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family photograph collection from my 40 years of photo albums, boxes and piles of family photographs:

This photograph was taken in the spring of 1991 in Sun City Center, Florida while we were on vacation visiting family and friends.  

The persons in the photograph, from the left, are:

*  Ruth Weston (Seaver) Fischer (1907-2000), my father's sister, and my aunt. She resided in Sun City Center in 1991, and was recently widowed.
*  Randall J. Seaver - me!
*  Geraldine (Seaver) Remley (1917-2007), my father's sister, and my aunt.  She and her husband resided in Altamonte Springs near Orlando in 1991.

A thorn between two roses, I think!  The ladies loved to dress up.  It must have been a Sunday, because I'm wearing a coat.  I think we went to Ruth's church in her retirement center on this day.

We visited Gerry and Jim several times while they lived in Florida, and every visit we drove the hour or two down to Sun City Center to see my Aunt Ruth.  She was always dressed and coiffed well, and was a very nice lady.  Ruth was really interested in the Seaver family history and made an audio tape with me on one of the visits.  She and her husband visited San Diego several times before my father died in 1983.  

Every one of my father's siblings were caring, thoughtful, intelligent, and interesting people.  That says something about their parents, my grandparents, I think.
