Two family get-togethers in Portland

Standard

Last week we made a quick trip to Portland for a memorial service for Robin’s cousin Larry. A cousin on her father’s side, he is the first of that generation of 13 cousins to die.

We attended a very nice ceremony at the Willamette National Cemetery, the main military cemetery in Oregon, and had a pleasant visit with Robin’s family, some of whom she had not seen for a long time.

The trip produced two family photographs. The first was this one, of eight of the 12 remaining cousins:

Eight Tuttle cousins, in ascending order of age: Anne, Mark, Nancy, Robin, David, Donny, and Carol

The trip was also the first time in a long time that Robin’s immediate family was all together in one place. That produced the second photograph:

The whole family: Robin, Mark, Karen, and Lois (Mom/Granny/Great Granny)
