Ruth's poem: THE WILSON REUNION We want to thank everyone for making our reunion a success/It was so nice of you to come and bring us happiness. We hope we made you feel welcome so you'll want to come again/It was so fun meeting all of you and getting ac- quainted with all our kin. We love you all clearly and want you to know that too/The whole reu- nion was special just because of you. How we loved the music--we thank you from the bottom of our heart/The way you shared your talent played such a special part. The children were all so good, of them we were so proud,/And did you ever see such a happy loving crowd? The food was so delicious we kept going back for more/Another day or two we wouldn't fit through the door. Sisters, brothers, cousins, Aunts, Uncles, neices and nephews, too/We will always treasure this special oc- casion we had with you.
