Aunt Marguerite's 90th Birthday Surprise

Aaron Michael did a beautiful thing when months earlier he started planning a February 24, 2019 surprise party for his mother's 90tth birthday! Auntie's mind is still quite sharp so keeping it secret was quite a challenge! I'm happy to report that she was very much surprised and delighted!!

Please share in her joy by clicking on the click below to view my short video. Many more Auntie!!

Reunion 2018 - Dallas
Reunion 2016 - Dallas

The Brown/Ewing Family Reunion 2016 was hosted by DeAnthony Rainey, August 5 through August 7. The event photographer provided almost 300 photographs that I have attempted herein to whittle down to 71 that provide a beautiful but manageable overview. This was an agonizing task! I have also attempted to organize the photos based somewhat on event chronologically and by family subgroups. I have labeled the portrait photos (48-71) to the best of my ability. I apologize in advance for any errors. Your corrections are encouraged.

Brown/Ewing Family Reunion 2016 - Dallas

2014 Summer in KC

The picnic organized by Claudette Rainey's children, Cheryl chief among them, was absolutely fantastic! The whole weekend was a rich family event but the picnic was the apex. Mom and I met descendants of many of Mama and Papa Brown's children. Offhand, we met the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Alice (including yours truly), Mickey (James), Claude, Paul, Marguerite, Rosalee, and Annabelle.     


While the visit was wonderful the travel portion was very difficult for my mother. We knew this going in but she very much wanted to go anyway. This was likely the last time she will see the place of her birth and childhood.  


Please enjoy the picnic pics below. My thanks go to Valerie Brown and Lynda Daniels for sending them to me. They were taken by cell phone. (I apologize for appearing in most of them; when I asked for their photos they must have assumed that's what I meant.) If anyone has other photos please send them to me by email,, or text message, (925) 519-8426.
