As the years have gone by…
I think the goat has been replaced with a pony!!
Today is my momma’s birthday. She’s a very proud 86 years young.
Her “birth” day is September 18, 1921.
Connersville, Indiana welcomed
Geraldine Ellen Langan
into the world along
with her mother, Mary Agnes Hendricks 1894-1972
and her father, Thomas Joseph Langan 2nd 1893-1952.
Momma is the third of six children;
Dorothy (Billie) Louise 1914-1984
Thomas Joseph 1915-1999
Agnes Jean 1925-1980 and Jane 1925-1985
and Delores 1931-2001.
She married my dad, Thomas Henry Hennley 1920-2000
on April 14, 1941 in Muskegon Michigan.
She is the very hearty survivor of her husband of 59 years,
her parents, siblings, my sister Diana 1943-1986 and two
of my children Phillip 1976 and my darling Britt 1979-1997.
Momma and Aunt Billie

Momma always told me that this is
The Wedding Picture
My sister Diana was born while my dad was fighting
in WWII. Diana was 18 months old when she met Dad.
Happily preparing a holiday dinner with Aunt Jean in the
background and Aunt Jane on the right…or is it Aunt Jean?
I remember this New Year’s Eve
because I took the photo in 1960 something.
More photos to follow tomorrow 9-19.
