Gentry Cooks on Thanksgiving

Although Rebecca and I had done extensive preparation and cooking the day before, Thanksgiving morning found us in the kitchen again. We had helpers who absolutely love to cook. Aunt Becky is in charge here as Gentry breaks an egg into what will become a cake, and Cole and Brady are watching closely, wanting to get their hands in. At one point, I heard Rebecca say to Brady who is 3 years old, “Here, Brady, you hold this can of pumpkin and keep it very warm.” I looked over, he grinned at me, and held tightly to his can.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
