Cleve and Susanne Curry enjoyed seeing all their children during the Thanksgiving weekend. Those coming Wednesday and Thursday were Kevin and Sarah Hancock, Braxton and Trenton; Justin and Joelle Curry and Milana, Moira, Ella Nora, Katie, and Charlie; and Eric and Rachel Long, Carter and Aubrey. Saturday Cleve and Susanne visited John and Carol Lisa and Jack near Salisbury, after John had problems with a wound on his ankle the previous day. Susanne expressed to me how was wonderful to get to see all the grandchildren, with Jack coming the farthest from Loyola University in Maryland.
