Connie Spicer's Album: Wall Photos

Photo 1 of 1 in Wall Photos

I am one of the family 'genies' - and some time ago ran across Sue as a DNA match. Since she was then the ONLY one I had connected to Dad's side, it was absolutely wonderful learning about her, her family, her Dad.

We were living in Florida when Sue brought Bob to visit. Happy days then, when Bob and my Dad were healthy and getting along so well. When was that, Sue? 2011? David and I were still living with Mom and Dad then, so it was before 2012, for sure, or if then early 2012. We moved in May.

What a lovely visit we had. Dad was so excited to connect with Bob and to share stories. Bob was 10 years older than Dad, so it is likely they didn't remember much about each other. The visit changed that. They talked about how Bob's older brother, Dex, was named for Great Grandpa, and that was something that impressed my Dad very much.

In 2014, we had a family reunion back in Dayton. Our Dexter and Swan cousins were located - as much as we could. Date set, and along comes Bob again. The photo is of Bob, my dad Ron Dexter and my mother Karen (Rutherford) Dexter.

Until we meet again, cousin. Cheers to you, and God bless you for your service to our country and humanity. Much love,

Connie Dexter Spicer
