Thanksgiving, 2001

We sorely miss Alberta Rooney who died of cancer and was buried on Tuesday before Thanksgiving day.  

For all our married years we have shared Thanksgiving with the Rooney's. This year was no exception, and it really helped that all the family was here. There were many activities with the youngest children, and when all had gathered, some wondrous after dinner football and soccer play outside.

Klebosky's arrived first, and we had a nice day on the beach at Sandy Hook, followed by some quiet time
