July 2, 2012 was an interesting day. We had already gone to bed at the Benton Hot Springs Campground when we heard a voice calling "Gary". For the first time, Gary, Rick, and Frances found that what had always been an abstract was indeed very real. Rick and Frances stopped being faces in a photo graph and became flesh and blood.
The photo was taken about 11:00 pm and everyone was tired but you couldn't tell. In the picture are Frances, Esther (the new cousin), Rick, and Gary. There was a lot of hugging and crying and I must say that Gary is delighted to have a new family and they are delighted to add him.
