My Father’s Family – Throwback Thursday

My son Mark was in town for business and we looked at an old photo album he hadn’t seen before. You want your offspring to know who has gone before. Already there are faces in the album for whom I have no names.

But here are my father Roy and his siblings and parents.  To see and older photo of the family you can click this blog post Heritage

Our Parents

My Father’s Day post.

Here’s a photo of our parents, Roy and Marian Hendricks. Dad is holding my sister.

My parents didn’t own a camera so a family friend must have taken this picture.
