Mark, Susan, Alan and Virginia with Marjorie, the clan matriarch.
We have a house full of family this weekend. Susan's brother Alan and his wife Virginia came from Eastern Maryland, and her son Mark came down from Chicago. We are having a nice dinner today to celebrate Marjorie who is Susan and Alan's mother. Marjorie lives in a retirement facility here in Tulsa, and Alan and Susan are her only children. Marjorie will be 90 in August.
It is especially nice for Mark and his uncle Alan to get together because their paths have not crossed since Mark's wedding 9 years ago. Susan has made a nice pork roast with all the trimmings.
